Sansevieria Trifasciata Laurentii Physical Characteristics

It is an erect, evergreen member of the Sansevieria genus. This plant’s leaves are strap-like, fleshy, and tipped like a sword. Its leaves are glossy, deep green, with gray-green stripes and a broad yellow band around the margin. It has no stem, so its leaves grow from an underground rhizome. As a perennial, long-lasting plant, it will serve you effectively as a decorative plant for a long time. 

It rarely flowers when grown indoors. However, it produces racemes from which small pale green flowers appear in spring. When its flowers mature, they produce orange berries in which there can be two or three seeds.
