Sansevieria trifasciata Hahnii is a lovely, short growing which remains less than one feet in height as it sends out new shoots, and spreads into a cluster of leafy funnels. It is a stemless perennial succulent plant with dark green leaves with clear horizontal bands, arranged in an attractive rosette. Sansevieria trifasciata can bloom in summer or autumn with sweetly fragrant greenish-white flowers, but this cultivar rarely seems to do so.

Planting and care
Sansevieria can be divided easily during repotting. Alternatively, new shoots, which emerge from the soil as spikes, can be taken and potted independently. They are rapid growers once established. Cuttings can also be taken, but it's much easier to rely on division.
Pot the snake plant in a clay container that is wider than it is tall since the root system is shallow. Choose a pot the same diameter or one size larger than the current container of a plant. Plastic is not the best choice for these plants because strong roots can easily crack and break weak pots.
- Sunlight: Full to partial sunlight
- Soil: sandy loam soil
- Water: Moderately
- Temperature: 20 to 35 degrees C
Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilize in the winter.
