The Sansevieria Masoniana is a unique houseplant with many names! Known informally as the Whale Fin plant or the Snake plant, this succulent has been recently re-classified as Dracaena Masoniana (scientific name).
They are fuss-free plants perfect for beginners, being quite resistant to pests and diseases while enduring a range of light conditions. Whale Fin plants prefer mild indoor temperatures and drier conditions thanks to their succulent-like leaves.
Whale Fin plants grow best in low-light. They are incredibly adaptable to a wide range of light and so can TOLERATE low light, but, the best, fastest growth is stimulated by bright, indirect light.
Your Snake plant needs a drink when the top 2 inches of soil feels completely dry. Another sign is when the leaves start to wrinkle slightly, indicating that the water stores have depleted.
During the fall and winter, your plant needs significantly less water. It’s not uncommon to water 1/3 or 1/4 as often as you did in the prime growing season. But the exact frequency depends on your climate, potting mix, etc.
