Sansevieria laurentii tennis ball

A "snake plant" or "Mother's in law tongue" plant growing in my den. This is an easy plant to keep happy. Just give it very bright indirect light (some morning sun is okay) and water only when quite dry, to keep it happy. Wilson the tennis ball included for size.

Thanks for looking and commenting, Barbara, I appreciate it.  None of my family, and only a few of my friends, are really in to gardening, so I really enjoying sharing and seeing pics and comments here.  :)  I think these snake plants are super easy as long as they get good light.  I think a lot of people keep them too dim, and overwater them too.  Let me know if you decide to get one.  My late house cat, Ramona, was terrible about molesting plants, so I know the pain of a naughty cat, LOL.  Take good care! Thanks again.

Nice plant & so tall!  I had one of these yrs. ago, & I've been wanting to get another one.  Strange thing, when I used to have a "house cat", she would always chew on & pull the Mother In-Law Tongue plant out of its container.  She always picked this one out & wouldn't bother the other plants.  Anyway, my plant wasn't even close to being this size!

"You're right, Keryn. 90 F feels really hot and uncomfortable to me, whereas I'll bet that is comfortable for you. And I am so jealous that your winter daytime temps are 50 to 65F. Our daytime winter temps in the coldest months (January and…"
