Description

The Sansevieria Robusta is a Snake Plant known for its thick, predominantly dark green leaves that are streaked with silver. This house plant classic is easy to care for and is a great option if you are new to owning plants, travel often or if you need something low-maintenance for your office! As this is a desert plant, it will grow fastest and be happiest in the brightest light possible, but it is extremely shade tolerant. This plant can also go a reasonably long time without water (sometimes over a month!) and the number one cause of their death is overwatering, so be cautious and you should be fine
