Product Description

Sansevierias or as they are commonly called Snake Plants or Mother-in-law's Tongue 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. The plants were kept near the entrances inside the home so that the eight virtues could pass through in a manner pre-Feng Shui. These plants also were placed in fine restaurants, herbalists, acupuncturists, doctor's offices, accountant's offices, banks, shrines, monastaries, and even in rice paddies. Sansevierias were grown and cherished well before the Chinese ti plant (Dracaena spp.) also known as the Good Luck Bamboo! The sansevieria is also referred to as a dragon for its many unique qualities. As with many Asian martial arts techniques, the strength comes from within. The sansevieria has been known to split large earthen pots upon reaching larger sizes. The Chinese have usually kept this plant potted in a pot within a ceramic pot often ornated with dragons and phoenixes. The attraction of this plant towards dragons is said to be magnetic. 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." Growing the Snake Plant is easy. It will thrive in very bright light to almost dark corners of the house. Just water when the soil is dry.

I purchased two of these guys for the bedroom and have been very happy with them thus far (about 3 months or so in). They arrived promptly (under a week) and were in great condition from the start. Like most of the plants I have purchased on Amazon, the container it comes in is too small, so you should have a larger pot and potting soil on standby.

These guys are the lowest maintenance of all the plants I currently own ( I have watered them once so far) and it is important that you read up on these guys before you buy them. They require very little watering, as their leaves store water naturally. So make sure you do not over water them

The picture is a good representation of the plants. I ordered 4 pots. Each pot contained an average of 11-12 leaves that were lush and hardy. Of the 4 pots, the tallest leaf was 13 inches and the shortest leaf was a newer growth that was 3 inches. The majority of the leaves averaged about 8 to 9 inches. They were well packed and out of the 4 pots there was only 1 tip that was broken right at the top from shipping, so considering how many leaves were in the 4 pots, it wasn't a problem at all.

It's big! Easily foot long leaves. Packed perfectly. Healthy. Just what I wanted! Arrived early. Don't hesitate. Awesome company. I also ordered a white marbled pothos and it is perfect too. Will buy more from this seller!

A year later after I purchased an almost dead plant I nursed it back to health, it is thriving. It has grown twice it's size. I bought two more of these and I know the cold affected their leaves when they were delivered but I will nurse these two back to health. I used miracle grow soil and plant food to start them off. Don't water them too much. Trust me if you over water, it will hurt them. These plants are low maintenance. Bubble wrap should be used around leaves to help with the shipping process.

I love these snake plants due to the oxygen they produce in my bath and bedrooms especially in the wintertime when the house is closed up. They very little light and very seldom need water and yet they produce oxygen even at night when most plant do not. Thanks.

The plants arrived in fabulous, healthy condition. Have gotten several new leaves on the snake plant in just a little over a month. I was skeptical about ordering something live over the Internet, but I am mobility challenged so I gave it a whirl. My experience has been the best!

I was so excited to receive it, It was neatly squeezed into a box much to small, which broke the tallest leaf. So far very little blue ,perhaps as it matures. I had to trim that leaf so I hope it thrives. I was upset that the shipping cost exceeded the price of the plant by over a dollar.

I looked forward to getting this plant because it was blue and I wanted to put it in my bathroom. I received it today and there is no blue on it. It looks very healthy so I'm hoping as it gets bigger the blue will come out
