Sansevieria Trifasciata Black Coral

Introduction

Sansevieria Trifasciata Black Coral is a snake plant variety with narrow leaves with vertically wide gray-green wavy horizontal bands over a dark green background. The leaves are so dark when they first emerge they almost appear black and these younger leaves lack any of the bandings that show up as the leaves age. Sansevieria Trifasciata are poisonous to dogs and cats (they can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea) and are considered air purifiers because they filter some toxins from the air. This cultivar plant is sometimes confused in the trade or claimed to be synonymous with an older Sansevieria Trifasciata variety called 'Black Gold', which should have a yellow margin that this one lacks.

Sansevieria Trifasciata Black Coral is also known as sansevieria black coral, snake plant, black coral snake plant, mother's tongue, african spear, magic sword.

    Light exposure

    Sansevieria Black Coral likes bright light and can stand plenty of direct sunlight. Snake plants are plants that thrive in low light conditions even though their growth is slowed.

    Sansevieria plants have more vibrant colors if they are placed in bright spots, so if you place them in dark places, their leaves will turn into dark green.
