A Blooming Snake Plant

Sanseivieria trifasciata

It's rare to see this indoors, but a wonderful surprise, when it does! Sansevierias are members of the lily family, Liliaceae. This bloom has a fragrance very similar to an Easter Lily!

Take good care of your snake plant and you may see one of these spring up one day. 

Care Instructions-
  • Low light to some direct sun. Full afternoon sun is too strong. 
  • In 4-6"(10-15 cm) diameter pots: Water thoroughly when dry about 1/2" (about 1.25 cm) below the soil surface for plants
  • For 8"(20cm) diameter pots or larger: Water thoroughly when the soil is dry about 1"or so (2-1/2 cm) below the soil surface
  •  Fertilize regularly.
