Snake Plant Black Coral - Medio

Sansevieria zeylanica

[ Pot Size: 6'' | Height: 12" - 14" ]
Also known as Sansevieria or a Striped Mother-in-Law's Tongue, the Snake Plant is one of the best for filtering out toxic formaldehyde, which is common in cleaning products, toilet paper, tissues and personal care products. Place one in your bathroom — it’ll thrive under low light and steamy humid conditions while helping filter out air pollutants. Can tolerate a lack of water but will fail quickly if over watered.
