Snake Plants Origins
Snake plants, 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.
The plant is native to West Africa and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. Only a few of the variations are Hahnii, Laurentii, Compacta, Goldiana, and Silbersee. The sizes and shapes of the plants range from small snake plants to a twisted-sister type with wavy leaves.
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.

Snake plants like rhino grass are ideal for inexperienced gardeners because they are virtually impossible to kill. It’s a terrific container plant that can be used on the floor or in tabletop displays and looks excellent in a cluster. The ability to withstand drought is also a property of these plants. There are two low-growing varieties, but they’re hard to get by in garden centers.
Although they are very forgiving, snake plants prefer indirect but steady light with some direct sun. They can adapt to full sun conditions and will also survive quite dim situations.
Sansevieria plants thrive in a loose, well-drained potting mix. This plant thrives on sandier soils. Choose a peat-free potting media that will pack and refuse to rehydrate or drain adequately in the long run. An all-purpose cactus potting soil is a good choice.
Between waterings, allow the soil to dry out. Reduce watering to once a month during the winter, or whenever the soil feels dry to the touch. Under-watering is preferable to over-watering, as too much water might harm the plant.
Temperature and Humidity
Sansevieria thrives in warm environments and will suffer if temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the plant in an area where it won’t be exposed to drafts. It’s great if the temperature is between 70 and 90 degrees.
The rhino grass is quite unique than the other varieties of snake plants. Do you happen to fall in love with the shape of rhino grass as much as I do? Let me know what you think by writing it on the comment section!
