Although there are many varieties of sansevieria available, the Whale Fin is definitely one of the most iconic with its gigantic leaves. Its leaves stand tall and wide, with the characteristic shape of a paddle or beaver’s tail. If you are looking for an easy care plant that also looks interesting, this is the right plant for you.
Sansevierias are the among the easiest plants to care for and are actually perfect for beginners or busy plant owners. They tolerate low-light but sufficient lighting condition brings out the colours in the leaves. Like most succulents, snake plants store water in their leaves so it is best to wait for the soil to totally dry out between waterings.
Due to its low-maintenance and air-purifying nature, the Sansevieria is a suitable plant to keep in the office. Slow-growing and tolerant of neglect, the snake plant can last for many years indoors.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
