Silver Snake Plant.
The Sansevieria Trifasciata 'Moonshine' is a relatively new stunning structural houseplant. Broad stiff upright leaves of pale silver greyish green (almost pearlescent) have dark green margins and faint horizontal lines. A very elegant and contemporary looking plant is is not only very easy to look after, it helps purify the air as it absorbs airborne toxins and expels oxygen. Very slow growing it will not need repotting very often and will grow quite happily in sunshine or shade while withstanding dry air draughts and drought.
