Sansevieria Jaboa Summary

Sansevieria Jaboa Physical Characteristics

Its leaves grow directly from a spreading rhizome. This rhizome sometimes spreads, allowing other shoots to appear, but it is ideal for propagation through division. Leaves have grey-green stripes, which is why this plant is known as a snake plant due to similarity. Its leaves are primarily erect, so the plant doesn’t spread too much. It may reach a maximum height of eighteen inches. 

It is one of the air-purifying plants whose stoma opens at night, thus releasing oxygen at night. Also, it clears some of the common indoor air pollutants leaving the house healthy.
