The variegated evergreen green leaves take on a V-shape, with a slight red tint along the edges and tips.
Due to the alternating pattern of leaf growth, the plant takes on a spiral appearance when viewed from above.
As new growth is from the base and not the upper part of the stem, it’s not unusual to see a bit of browning in the leaf tips.
Keep your dwarf snake plant in indirect, bright light for the best results.
Full sun may damage the more sensitive leaves. While the plant can tolerate partial shade, the coloration won’t be as vibrant in a low light setting.
Outdoors, not in full sun, Sansevieria ehrenbergii is recommended for USDA hardiness zone 10, due to its high frost sensitivity.
When indoors, keep the plant away from cold drafts. Room temperatures should remain above 50° degrees Fahrenheit.
