Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)
Sansevieria Trifasciata is a tough, hardy snake plant. The long sword-like leaves are pale green with wavy dark green bands. The Trifasciata produces multiple offsets in a compact dense clutter. A popular and hardy indoor plant, it will thrive in neglect!
To propagate Sansevieria, take the plant out of its pot and divide the rhizome (root crown) into parts. Make sure you leave enough root system for each part you divide.
The only thing to avoid with Sansevieria is poor-draining soil or sitting in water. It can causes root rot and kill the plant. Other than that, it is almost an easy care, beginner house plant.
