I'm destined for the desert, so keep my environment dry and mist free to keep me happy.


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


I don't need much water. If my soil is dry I'm thirsty and it's time to water me!

About Black Coral Snake Plant

Don't let the Sansevieria Black Coral’s rather intimidating name put you off, it is actually an attractive and low-maintenance indoor plant. Named for its patterned, pointed foliage, the Snake Plant is bound to attract attention. This tall houseplant is ideal for most homes as it is a slow grower and won't get much taller than 1m.

Like its reptilian namesakes in its home of West Africa, the Snake Plant loves a warm and dry environment (15-23°C, min 10°C). Avoid misting unless you notice its tips starting to brown. Since it hates humidity, your living room or bedroom is the ideal home for this Prickle Plant. As they like desert conditions, they rarely need watering - only water them when their soil is dry and make sure they don't sit in water. The Black Coral is shade-tolerant but prefers being kept in bright, indirect sunlight. Given the fact that many snakes are venomous, you'll likely not be surprised to learn that the Snake Plant is poisonous to pets and children.
