The Snake Plant Jade Star is another species Dracaena, a flowering plant native to the tropical West Africa, from Nigeria to the Congo. It is known by a lot of common names including the Snake plant, Saint George’s sword, mother-in-law’s tongue, and viper’s bowstring hemp because of its sharp and sturdy leaves.
A lot of plant enthusiasts called this plant Sanseverieria because it previously belonged to that genus, until it was found to be a Dracaena in 2017. It is a popular houseplant or ground cover in interior landscape designs because of its durability and ease of care.

LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT
The Snake Plant is the most low maintenance plant there is. It doesn’t require a lot of care to keep your plant happy. Place your plant in a brightly lit environment to keep its leaves healthy and leathery. The best pot to place your plant in is a terracotta pot. This prevents excess water and will make sure that the plant roots are aerated. In the long run, this will ensure better rooting and prevent root rot.
Use a free-draining soil mix. This soil drains well and prevents excess moisture. You can practically put your plant anywhere, but to make the most out of its health benefits, put it in your room or office.
They don’t need much water, so you can just water your plant every two to eight weeks, depending on the humidity of your home or the time of the year. Make sure that the top couple of inches are completely dried in between watering. Lastly, pruning is definitely optional. You can cut the outer leaves that have fallen over for aesthetic reasons, but it’s not necessary.
PLANT CARE WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
The plant isn’t toxic to humans and animals. It also doesn’t cause dermatitis like other plants, but it’s best to keep them out of reach of pets and children."
