The Snake Plant Mikado has thin, fleshy spike-shaped leaves. The leaves narrow to a point and make quite an architectural statement in any room. As with other snake plants, these succulents are extremely easy to look after, are experts at purifying the air, and can also tolerate low light conditions making them one of the best plants for beginners or stress-free plant parenting.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

Keep me in a bright spot, out of the direct sun. Water me when my soil has dried out and wipe my leaves every month or so.
Water me moderately in summer and less in winter, waiting for the top half of my soil to dry out.
I thrive in a spot with indirect light but can tolerate shade.
Give me liquid fertiliser once a month during spring and summer.
The Snake Plant Mikado was categorised as part of the Sansevieria genus by Swedish naturalist Carl Thunberg in 1794. In 2017 new findings, enabled by improvements in modern-day DNA studies, removed the Snake Plant from its original genus, placing it into the Dracaena genus instead, along with the Corn Plant and Dragon Tree.
The Snake Plant Mikado is a variety of succulents most often found in Africa, from Congo to Madagascar and Southeast Asia. They are usually found in arid climates and, due to their water-storing, succulent leaves, are tolerant to drought.
As houseplants, Snake Plants are very easy to look after. They enjoy bright, indirect light but can tolerate shade and don't require any additional humidity to be happy. They are prone to root rot if overwatered, so it’s important to plant them in soil that drains well and only water them when the top half of their soil is completely dry
According to the NASA clean air study, Snake Plants are effective at removing pollutants from the air, including formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene.
I'm autistic and I love touching this snake plant - it has a sandy feel that's somehow calming. Might get another one.
Really unusual plant, love it.
Gorgeous addition to the room
