This type of ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’ is an evergreen sansevieria that has grayish-green leaves in striped patterns. The shorter sword-shaped leaves grow in a dense clump and are identified by their twisted growth. Unlike most other sansevieria trifasciata varieties, the ‘Future Robusta’ only reaches heights of around 60 cm.
This plant can be grown as an indoor houseplant or outside. Snake plants can grow throughout all types of light. It can grow in full sun but will also grow (slower) in low light conditions.
Snake plants don't require too much water, and their roots can actually be damaged if they're allowed to soak in soil that is full of moisture. To allow for good drainage and a healthy root system, choose a free-draining soil mix or even a soilless potting mixture.
