Light: Low light to Dappeled shade, will tolerate full sun but not recommended.

Water: Keeping water to a minimum, only when the soil has dried out, is the best way to avoid root rot.
Sansevieria produce more oxygen than most other plants. They are packed with an unusual concentration of chlorophyll, making them a photosynthesis powerhouse.
The snake plant is made of tough stuff. It grows primarily across Africa, in very dry conditions. It’s used to places so hot that during the day it keeps all its pores completely closed, so it doesn’t lose any water to evaporation. When the temperature cools at night, its pores open, releasing all the oxygen its been holding in.
Its toughness makes it a dream of a houseplant. If you’re a beginner, this is the one for you. It thrives on neglect. It can live in any light conditions and doesn’t care if you forget to water it. The only thing it hates is too much water. It will appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer, but that’s about as much special attention as it needs.
Low-key as it is, the snake plant is treasured all over the world. Across Africa, it’s associated with Ogun, the deity of war, and Oya, the bringer of storms. In China, it’s the ‘tiger’s tail orchid’; in Brazil, the ‘sword of Saint George’. Basically, this plant is pretty famous.
You can have them indoors or outdoors as a feature plant in a pot. Or in a mixed succulent planter.
Or clumping in a rockery, a succulent garden, or the border edge of a mixed garden bed.
