Snake Plant Laurentii
The Snake Plant Laurentii is a succulent plant characterized by its upright swordlike leaves with vibrant yellow edges. A multitasker just like Dad, the snake plant purifies indoor air by removing toxins such as formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. Plant height will vary.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.
Water every 2-3 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Increase frequency with increased light.
This plant is known for its air purifying capabilities.
Native to southern and central Africa, the Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii' is a cultivar of snake plant with yellow variegated edges. Snake plants are tropical plants that are also succulents. Often positioned as low light plants, they are actually medium to bright light plants that tolerate, but not thrive in low light. Like other succulent plants, they have a modified form of photosynthesis, where in order to preserve water, the plant opens its pores exclusively at night. However, since photosynthesis only happens with daylight, the plant stores carbon dioxide acquired at night for use during the day, and releases oxygen (one of the end products of photosynthesis) at night when the pores open. This helps it to maximize efficiency in cleaning the air, as found in study conducted by NASA.Learn more
