About Sansevieria 'Samurai Dwarf'
Did you know the genus name Dracaena comes from the Greek for ‘female dragon’? Some plants in this genus have thick, red resin which was reminiscent of dragon blood! 🐲 Dracaenas are native to Africa, Asia, and northern Australia, and are known for being super easy to care for. Some species can go months without water, and many can grow well in low sunlight.

What other plant parents say
This little guy, as well as my other snake plants don’t demand much. I keep him in a well lit area and water him once a month. Same with my other snake plants. They reward me with little pups every few months. Love this plant! Perfect for people with brown thumbs or little time to care for a plant. However, they DO NEED LIGHT! “Low light tolerant” just means that it won’t die immediately from lack of light. It may take months or years before you see it take a turn for the worst, but it will most definitely happen. So put yours in a well lit place and keep away from cold drafts or freezing temperatures. Cold will scar the leaves and eventually kill it.
