Sansevieria masoniana, also known as Whale Fin Snake Plant or mother in law tongue,is rather slow-growing, however it can reach an impressive size compared to other members of the genus. Its leaves are beautifully mottled with patterns of dark and light green, and the leaf margins are often a pink-ish red. It’s a great for beginners plant, requiring very little maintenance.

Sansevieria is a really easy plant to care for!

This plant is about 15cm tall, 9cm wide and comes in a plastic nursery pot 7cm big in diameter.

Care tips
LIGHT Even though Sansevierias prefer medium light (which is about 3m away from west or south window), they’ll also tolerate low light and high light. Just be sure to keep them out of the direct sun because they’ll burn in a heartbeat. WATER You want to be careful not to overdo it because your plant will rot out. Always make sure the soil is completely dry before thoroughly watering again. Water your Snake Plants every 2-6 weeks, depending on your home’s temperature, light levels, and humidity. POTTING Use an equal-parts combination of soil-based potting mixture and coarse sand. Be sure to have a shallow layer of clay pot fragments in the bottom of pots for quick drainage. Move small plants into pots one size larger in spring; older plants will continue to thrive in 8cm or 10cm pots or half pots for several years.
