Fun Facts About Sansevieria Potted Plants
Originating from West Africa, the scientific name of the Sansevieria plant is Sansevieria Trifasciata. The second word, Trifasciata means “marked with three bands,” which is another way of saying the plant leaves have different coloured streaks.
Sansevierias have beautiful tall and narrow leaves that are sturdy, stiff and very pointy. The leaves can vary in colour from pale to dark green, green edged with yellow or light green and yellow. As the Sansevieria plant matures, the plant can even produce little delicate flower spikes in a pale green or yellowish color. This flowering is very unpredictable, and some plants may never flower.
In African culture, Sansevierias are known to provide spiritual protection and in Chinese culture, these plants are believed to bring prosperity and long life to the caretaker.
