The Sansevieria Moonshine, also known as the Silver Snake plant, is a pretty popular indoor plant. The Sansevieria family originates from Africa, Madagascar, and South Asia.
The leaves of the Sansevieria Moonshine have a beautiful gray-white color that makes the plant almost glisten in the sun, they are shorter, thicker, and more numerous per rosette than the other species.
Moonshine is rather slow-growing, however it can reach an impressive size compared to other members of the genus. Great for any spot in the house, especially a shady spot for it to fill and look fabulous in. The Sansevieria Moonshine reaches an impressive leaf length of up to 60". The leaf color will darken in shade.
This plant has managed to adapt to dry climates. Therefore, give the plant very little water.The Sansevieria is extremely easy to care for with strong air-purifying properties. As this plant can store water in its leaves and therefore rarely needs water, it would otherwise lead to root rot if you water it too often. Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering. Place the Sansevieria Moonshine in a semi-shady location, as too much light can cause the radiant leaves to fade. Moonshine thrives in normal household humidity. Avoid humid locations but if brown tips develop, consider occasional misting.
The moonshine feels most comfortable in a mixture of indoor plant soil and sand. Sansevieria have small root structures, so you don’t need to repot the plant every year.
A study by NASA has proven that Sansevieria are excellent air-purifying plants capable of removing harmful toxins from the surroundings.
This broad-leafed Sansevieria is an exotic houseplant guaranteed to add elegance and texture to your home or office. It is particularly eye-catching as a contrast plant when displayed alongside other darker-leafed Sansevieria.
