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 | Snake Plants can thrive in a variety of natural lighting conditions, as in their native environments, they grow everywhere from full sun to under a shady canopy. They’ll survive in indirect light, but for best growth keep them in lots of bright light, with a few hours of direct sunlight. 

Water | Allow the soil to thoroughly dry out between waterings; in a bright spot during the summer, watering once fortnightly is ideal. Snake plants would much prefer to be underwatered, and in dry environments than overwatered or in high humidity, as they can be susceptible to root rot! 

Temperature | Will go dormant under 10°C, but can survive down to 5°C without being damaged - grow in temperatures above 15°C for the healthiest plant.
