Whitney Snake Plants (Sansevieria Trifasciata Whitney) have shiny, dark green spear-shaped foliage. This hybrid Bird's Nest form of Sansevieria is fairly small and compact in comparison to most forms in its cultivar.

The Whitney is an unusual snake plant because the variegation is on the inside of the leaves and the border is a solid dark green color. The sleek leave paired with this unique coloring makes for a classy and regal addition to any space.

Native to Africa, the Snake Plant Whitney is well adapted to desert environments with intense sun and heat during the day and colder climates at night. Snake plants are nicknamed 'Mother In Laws Tongue,' and are hardy to most treatment. Ideal care for these easy-care houseplants consists mostly of neglect.

Ideal conditions for the Whitney Snake includes indirect but bright light and a well draining potting mix. However, because these plants can handle just about anything, they will happily adapt to lower levels of indirect sunlight, and can also survive in a room without any sun at all.

Because these plants have semi-succulent leaves, they store excess water within them and do not require frequent watering. We recommend waiting until the soil is dried in between each watering for optimal growth.

A Whitney Snake Plant will surely make a statement in any space, and as an added benefit works as an air purifier to clean your home of toxins. Perfect for living rooms, bathrooms and basements alike, place your Sansevieria wherever you need a little green in your life and it will surely thrive.
