Sansevieria trifasciata Laurentii is probably the most recognisable and popular Sansevieria houseplant with its mottled grey-green leaves and creamy-yellow margins.
Considered virtually indestructible this is an excellent choice for all situations. It's tall, architectural presence and warm colouring ensure this Sansevieria stands out from the crowd. Often called mother-in-law's tongue, it might be one for the guest room.
Sansevieria like to dry out completely between waterings. The most common mistake made with these plants is overwatering. Even if your plant is placed in ample bright indirect light, you won't need to water it more than once every 10 days (at most) during the growing season.
Light: Best in moderate to bright, indirect light but will adapt to low light conditions too.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out before watering, then water thoroughly and allow to drain freely. Do not allow the plant to sit in water as this will cause root rot.
Temperature: Happy anywhere from 15-23°C and as low as 10°C for short periods.
