(Snake Plant, Mother-in-Law's Tongue)
Sansevieria trifasciata

Low-light plant. This stemless plant has exceptionally pretty long spear-shaped leaves striped in grey and light green. One of the most durable plants there is. It can tolerate anything but freezing temperatures.

Its bold and clutter free lines make it very popular and one of best choices for architecture and interior design, especially in view of its reputation as an improver of indoor air quality.

Left: Laurentii, green leaves striped in grey and light green and edged with gold.

Right: Zeylanica, darker green striped leaves with no border on the leaves.
