What are Snake Plants?
Sansevieria, which is native to Africa, is commonly called the snake plant, because of the shape of its leaves, or mother-in-law's tongue because of their sharpness. It forms dense stands, spreading by way of its creeping roots. Its stiff sword-shaped leaves grow vertically from a basal rosette. Leaves are banded yellow on either side with a deep green, lightly banded center. Mature leaves are dark green with light gray-green cross-banding. It is grown for the hemp-like fiber in the leaves, which is called bowstring hemp. They are an attractive plant for pot culture and are very durable for a wide range of conditions. They grow small greenish-white flowers on spikes but are attractive due to their foliage. They tolerate low light conditions and are very drought tolerant. They are propagated by the division of roots at any time of the year. Buy Snake Plants online in India to grow some of the best evergreen plants which are must-have collector species.

FAQs on Snake Plants
How to propagate snake plants?
Snake plants can be easily propagated with leaf cuttings as well as by division from the roots.
Do snake plants give oxygen at night?
Using Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), Snake Plants absorb carbon-di-oxide at night, which is unlike most plants. This means they don’t give out CO2 at night like most plants. They may give out trace amounts of oxygen at night, but it isn’t large by volume.
