Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata ‘Laurentii’)


My Power: 

It is also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, this plant is one of the best for filtering out formaldehyde, which is common in cleaning products, toilet paper, tissues and personal care products. Put one in your bathroom — it’ll thrive with low light and steamy humid conditions while helping filter out air pollutants.

You may also want to put a couple of these sharp-leafed plants in your bedroom. Interestingly, they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen at night (the opposite of the process most plants follow). Sharing your room with these plants could give you a slight oxygen boost while you sleep.

Sansevierias have a rich history of folklore and new science. These plants have a rich history of cultivation. In China, it was kept as a treasured houseplant because the Eight Gods bestowed their eight virtues on those who grew them. These virtues include long life, prosperity, intelligence, beauty, art, poetry, health and strength.

An interesting research program has been done by NASA using a few selected plants (one is Sansevieria) for air purification and to curb “Sick Building Syndrome.”

The size of the potted plants:

  • Small Pot: Height: 12cm to 15cm
  • Big Pot: Height: 35cm to 45cm


How to take care of Me:


Although they are very forgiving, the sansevieria prefers bright light with some sun. They can adapt to full sun.


Let the soil dry between waterings. Do not over watering.


They prefer warmth and will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 50 F.


Feed during the growing season with a weekly dose of weak liquid fertilizer or with controlled-release fertilizer.
