Plant Bio

Naturally home to west Africa, from Nigeria along to the Congo, found growing in open or lightly shaded grasslands, and able to withstand long periods of drought. 

Originally named ‘Sansevieria’, the genus of the Snake Plant changed in 2017 to ‘Dracaena’ after recent technologies allowed for more accurate genetic understanding and caused it to be transferred to a more suited taxa. The specie name ‘trifasciata’ refers to the growth habit of the plant, often found in tight, basal bundles of three. 

Although seemingly unlikely, the Snake Plant is part of the Asparagaceae family, alongside Asparagus Ferns, and of course, Asparagus itself. 

Other common names for this plant include: Snake Plant, Silver Snake Plant

Care Tips


Light |
 Naturally growing in bright light, so near a sunny window is ideal. It will tolerate lower light but more light = faster growth. 

Water | With succulent-like leaves, the Snake Plant is happily tolerant of drought so ensure that the soil has good drainage and drys out between waterings

Humidity | No extra humidity required.

Temperature Snake Plants will go dormant under 10℃, so for best growth, keep them in temperatures of between 15-24℃.
