These plants are not favored by everyone because of their strong, bold look & tough, pointed leaves. They’re definitely not the soft, “touchy feely” kind of plants. I, on the other hand, love them & have quite a few of them. I’ve had many varieties, both growing in pots & in the ground in my Santa Barbara garden. Yes, indoors & out – I like sansevierias that much.

Their modern, edgy feel appeals to me along with how easy they are to take care of. I now live in Tucson, Arizona where I have them growing in my home along with some in pots outside in the bright shade. The strong desert sun would fry them but they handle the dry air like champs.

These evergreen perennials are very long lived, unlike some houseplants. If you’re looking for your own snake plant, there are many different species and varieties on the market with more being introduced each year.

You can find them tall or short, with round, flat or concave leaves, & variegated with dark green, silver, light green, yellow, chartreuse or white. My personal favorites are: the old standbys Sansevieria trifasciata and “laurentii”, cylindrica (this is the 1 they braid), “moonshine“, “futura superba” & “gold hahnii”.

Some reasons to love these plants:

Sansevierias are one of the best plants when it comes to air purification. They filter out formaldehyde and nitrogen oxide. They do this at night time making them great plants for the bedroom. You can go to bed & this plant will clean the oxygen around you. Maybe this is the reason why it’s considered they’re considered to be good luck plants.

They’re virtually indestructible unless you have a heavy hand with the watering can or place them in a hot, sunny window. Snake Plants seem to thrive on the dry air in our homes, as well as neglect. The more you ignore them, the better they do. This is why they are one of the easiest care houseplants.

And, as I said earlier, I also love Snake Plants because of their bold, architectural, sassy look.
