If you’re new to the indoor plant game or are simply looking for an easy-care houseplant, the Sansevieria is the plant for you. This hardy plant is renowned for its adaptability and its classic sword-like leaves. While it does best in bright indirect sunlight, it can truly withstand all light levels from full sun to low light. The Sansevieria is also drought tolerant, making it able to take a little neglect. Keep its sturdy leaves dust-free by wiping them regularly.

The timeless Sansevieria is one of the most beloved indoor houseplants thanks to its sturdy upright leaves, green markings, and adaptability to almost any environment. These plants can adapt to any indoor lighting and like to dry between waterings, making them the ideal no-fuss plant.

The Sansevieria is native to the arid deserts of Africa but has acclimated to homes across the globe. This rugged plant can be placed in low to direct light, but prefers indirect bright light. Water only when the soil volume is 100% dry. Keep an eye out for “pups” produced by the mother plant, which can easily be propagated to expand your jungle or add to someone else’s.
