Origin Of Sansevieria Trifasciata
Sansevieria trifasciata, which originated in West Africa’s tropical jungles, appear to flourish in hot, sunny environments. Snake plants thrived in a region of Africa that extended from Nigeria to the Congo before becoming a popular indoor plant. The species has grown in popularity as an indoor houseplant all around the world since then.
Throughout its history, this plant has been known as Sansevieria. The Dracaena genus was first added to the plant family in 2017. The scientific name of the snake plant has recently been changed to Dracaena trifasciata. It is a member of the Asparagaceae plant family, which includes a garden, as you might anticipate.
This Sansevieria species is arguably the most well-known. It’s from West Africa’s tropical region. It’s also known as the snake plant or mother-in-tongue laws in this country. Creeping rhizomes produce linear-lanceolate leaves. They are grass green with white to light green transverse streaks and grow to be 40 to 60 centimeters long. The cultivar “Laurentii” is well-known for its golden yellow longitudinal stripes along the leaf margins.
This plant comes in a variety of cultivated forms, including the “Hahnii,” which has brightly colored, rosette-shaped, funnel-shaped leaves, and the “Golden Flame,” which has golden yellow stripes. This Sansevieria thrives in pots that are too small for it.
Across civilizations, the plant is known by a variety of names. It’s also known as mother-in-language law in English. Snake plants are known in Portuguese as Espada de Sâo Jorge or Saint George’s sword. In Japan, the plant is known as a tiger’s tail. According to NASA’s Clean Air Study, the variegated variety of snake plants, or Dracaena trifasciata ‘Laurentii,’ has been added to the list of air-purifying plants.
