Your Sansevieria Moonshine won't grow much and neither will show off all its color because its leaves will turn dark if it doesn't receive much light. On the other hand, if you provide it a bright light your snake plant will grow faster and the pale silver-grey-green foliage will be maximized.

Snake Plants are succulent so they don't require much water to stay healthy and thrive. In addition, Sansevieria's is a drought-tolerant plant and its most common dead reason is over-watering because it causes root rot.

Let the soil dry out completely between waterings and use a terracotta or porous material pot to make sure you don't over water it.
