1- 2 feet in height.
Hardy to 30-32 degrees F, but much happier in warmer climates as this is native to West Africa. Can be planted outdoors in Zone 10a, 10b, and 11.
Very low maintenance
The Sans Moonshine does best in moderate to bright indirect light. Though as with most Sansevieria plants, they can also do fine in low light areas and full sun.
Like all Sansevieria a little water goes a long way. Dont saturate this plant by any means. Treat it like a succulent.
Grown best in well draining succulent/cactus soil.
DOES IT FLOWER?
Yes, but rarely indoors, though never say never. If it is in happy conditions, it will develop a long stock with tiny white flowers along this.
IS IT POISONOUS/TOXIC?
CAN IT BE PROPAGATED FROM CUTTINGS?
You cannot propagate from cuttings, but you can by dividing the plants "pups" which are essentially their bulbs, into new plants. To do this take the snake plant out of the pot, and you will be able to notate full sections grown from single sources, and then interwoven together with a mass of roots, just pull one of these sections off, and replant in new soil. Easy peasy.
Sansevieria plants are by their very nature considered one of the hardiest indoor plants. So not much can take this one down except overwatering / Common pests: Mealy bugs, Scale, and Spider mites; outdoors would be / Other common ailments: fungal spots, bacterial rot.
