Sansevieria are a herbaceous, evergreen, mildly toxic flowering plant that is native to Africa and Asia. People mostly use it as an ornamental plant and it does well indoor and outdoors. It thrives well in small pots. This is because in a small space, its rhizomes are crowded and this enables it to grow faster. it's well known for its capacity to purify the air by converting harmful substances into harmless ones.

If growing indoors, you’ll need a strong pot – a clay pot, for example. This ensures that the roots don’t break it as they grow. It should be wide but not tall, due to the plant’s shallow rooting system and should be perforated for proper drainage. The soil should also be well drained to avoid waterlogging since too much water can rot the plant.

Mother-in-Law's Tongue require maximum indirect sunlight. You should also keep the plant away from drafts, high winds, and extreme temperatures. They do well with minimal watering, and whilst the soil can be kept dry or slightly moist, don't let it stay wet.

This is a dwarf sansevieria variety and is uncommonly found. It features a wide but short leaf that unfurls in a bright green, which quickly fades to a very deep, dark green that is almost black, giving it it's name.
