Its foliage is arranged in an attractive rosette, the leaves are darker green with a combination of marginal and internal creamy-yellow stripes of variable width/length which are parallel with the veins of the leaf.

Light: Sansevieria thrives in just about any light. Bright light to full sun, will also tolerate low light. It an excellent choice for low light conditions
Water: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out between waterings during the growing season. In winter, water just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Overwatering will cause root rot. Take care not to water the center of the rosette of leaves because they'll rot easily if kept wet.
Humidity: Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist your plant more frequently in the summer growing season- the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.
