Sansiveria is a perennial plant with long and pointed leaves, full of fibers. It has a very fast growth rate and does not need much watering, as it stores water inside its leaves. It is, perhaps, the most durable indoor plant.
Its flowers are white and small and go almost unnoticed. To grow quickly it needs bright places. It also lives in shady places but grows more slowly. Direct contact with sunlight can burn it, especially during the summer.
Like all indoor plants, it must be kept away from heat sources and cold air currents. The ideal temperature for its proper development is between 17 and 28°C.
