Black Coral Snake Plants for Sale Online
Black Coral Snake Plant is a beautiful low light, drought-tolerant indoor plant with dark-green and silver striped foliage. NASA studies have found them to be excellent at cleaning the air of toxins. They clean the air at night and add oxygen to the air making them perfect as bedroom plants. Easy to grow and nearly impossible to kill!
Also known as a Mother-in-law's Tongue, this plant is on our list for Top 5 Houseplants for Beginners. Botanically referred to as 'Sansevieria Trifasciata Black Coral,' these low maintenance houseplants boast waxy sword-like foliage that makes for a perfect vertical element to a space.
Ideal care conditions for these easy going plants includes a bright indirect light and a well draining potting mix. Because these plants are so hardy though, they will easily adapt to medium or low light conditions as opposed to most houseplants that love bright lighting. Astonishingly, your Snake Plant can survive in a room without any real sunlight whatsoever.
Sansevieria originate from dry desert environments, so they are extremely drought tolerant. We recommend you water your snake plant around every three to four weeks, but it can handle missed waterings without problem. When in doubt, it is better to err on the side of caution and water less than more. Allowing your Snake Plant to sit in a soaking pot of water is bound to end in root rot.
Your snake plant will also benefit from a well balanced fertilizer when your plant is actively growing in spring and summer. As a fun bonus, happy Sansevieria put out tiny white flowers when grown in ideal conditions.
These plants do extremely well in offices or buildings where they can live away from windows or natural light. They are frequently found in atriums indoors as they pair well with many different plants and add a vertical element to mixed containers.
It is important to note that snake plants are mildly toxic when consumed by pets and children, so be sure to keep them out of reach!
