Snake Plant Laurentii - Piccolo

Sansevieria trifasciata

[ Pot Size: 4'' | Height: 10" - 11" ]
The Snake Plant Laurentii—also called Striped Mother-in-Law’s Tongue—is a stemless evergreen with fleshy, sword-shaped foliage that can grow up to four feet tall in its native habitat. The bold leaves—with their striped, green-gray bands and yellow edges—spiral outward from a rosette at the base. Tolerating a wide range of environmental conditions, the Snake Plant Laurentii is perfect for spaces where natural sunlight may be limited.
