The Sansevieria Sayuri 'Metallica' or 'Silver Siam' is a less common variety of Sansevieria that is characterized by its unique, silvery pale green foliage with white vertical striping. It has several common names, yet is most commonly referred to as the 'Snake Plant.' Tough-skinned and almost indestructible, this hardy plant thrives on neglect and is drought tolerant. The most common issue to avoid with this plant is over-watering. If you are new to owning houseplants or looking for a low maintenance plant, add a Sanserveria to your shortlist.
