Sansevieria Trifasciata, also known as Snake Plant or Mother-In-Law’s Tongue, is a hardy drought tolerant plant native to tropical west Africa from Nigeria to the Congo. They are known for removing toxins and purifying the air. Sansevieria are perfect for beginner plant parents. While they do best in bright filtered light they are adaptable and tolerate partial shade and low light conditions. Sansevieria should be watered when the top inch is dry but are forgiving of infrequent waterings, making it perfect for plant parents who are just learning or do not have as much time to spend on their plants as they would like.
The Sansevieria is low to medium light tolerant allowing it to live in most living spaces but thrives in medium to bright indirect sunlight.
Sansevierias are naturally great at storing water. We suggest watering once a week allowing the soil to drain and dry. Overwatering can cause the plant to rot and die so start off with a bit of water and get to know your plant.
Similar to humans, plants prefer temperatures of 65⁰ to 85⁰ although some plants like the Sansevieria are native to arid climates and can tolerate much warmer weather.
A very light feeder, apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at half strength once every 1 - 3 months.

The word terracotta can trace its roots back to the Latin words “terra cocta” meaning baked earth. This clay-based pot minimizes over-watering and helps plants maintain healthy roots by absorbing excess moisture from the soil. In addition to its health benefits terracotta is known for developing a unique patina that gives it a beautiful and timeless look as it ages.
