Spreading through its condensed roots, it forms a dense form. Its rigid sword-shaped leaves grow vertically from a basal rosette.The Sansevieria Green Snake Plant leaves are tied on either side with a dark green stripe with a yellow stripe. Mature leaves are dark green with light gray-green cross-banding. It is grown for hemp-like fibers in leaves, called a bowling hemp. Small greenish-white flowers grow on the spikes, but are attractive because of their foliage. They tolerate low light conditions and are much less tolerant. They are propagated by division of roots at any time of the year.
