Another sought after snake plant because of its lighter leaf shade, this plant brings elegance and class to modern interiors. Its lighter shade is maintained only if grown in strong light. If grown in lower lighting, it will revert to a greenish coloration which is non-reversible. As with other snake plants, this is an evergreen perennial, that grows quickly forming dense stands, and spreading by way of its creeping rhizome. There are many varieties of Snake Plant. This one is a MEDIUM growing Sansevieria that will reach about 10-12 inches in height, and is called "Moonshine".
