The Best Snake Plant for Neglect

The Sansevieria Zeylanica is a very hardy snake plant. It grows in zones 9 – 11 and thrives best in full sun, requiring less water than some other plants. It’s native to regions of Africa, Madagascar and Southern Asia and this subtropical plant does well both as a houseplant and in your own outdoor landscaping.

The Sansevieria Zeylanica’s  leaves are what really make this plant unique, as they are very thick and stiff, often with yellow edging or white spots throughout. Growing up to 42 inches in height, they sometimes (though rarely outside of their native habitat) produce green and white flowers in large clusters.

Commonly known as Viper’s bowstring hemp, Snake Plant, Devil’s Tongue or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, these plants can handle lower light levels and can even handle dry soil or bad quality soil. The viper’s bowstring hemp actually thrive on neglect. To get the best out of them, however, you’ll want to make sure the soil is well drained and that you fertilize them just a little. Make sure not to over-water your Sansevieria Zeylanica, as over-watering is worse than under-watering.

Make sure that you keep the Sansevieria Zeylanica’s leaves away from your pets and small children as they can be toxic if ingested. If you want to grow more or give some away you can divide the plant you have and create more easily.

Why others chose the Snake Plant, Sansevieria zeylanica

I have this plant already and just wanted to add mor to my collection

I was ready to grow into (pun intended) a different plant from my pothos but wanted something sturdy that isn’t easy to kill.

I've always wanted a plant like this!

Beautiful plants and hoping for low maintenance.

Low light, low maintenance plant

This was a gift. It is very easy to take care of and doesn't need much light.

Better air quality inside

Low maintenance!

I need a tall-ish plant to go on the shelf by the TV in a low light area.

I like the cut of their jib

My favorite

Easiest plant to care for & known as one of the best air-purifying plants.

Easy care and elegance!

Easy care and elegance!

Beautiful and easy to care for

Easiest plant to maintain

Low light in apartment

I need something to fill a 10” planter I already have that can withstand a shadier area in my home.

It's a gorgeous hardy plant ! Also purifies the's a win-win!

To spruce up my bedroom despite the fact they say plants aren’t good in bedroom I’ve heard this one is!

Very easy to grow and beautiful!

Replacing an old one

Reminds me of my childhood. My grandmother always had these round the house.

Diversifying collection

Love the fine leaves very contemporary look


Wanted to collect different varieties of the snake plant

Good value.

Reminds me 9f Jamaica where I'm from
