Sansevieria Fernwood Mikado is a compact hybrid Snake Plant. Fernwood Sansevieria has dark green leaves with striking light green tiger-print striping. The Mikado form adds an interesting fountain-like shape look for a more modern look.
Considered virtually indestructible this is an excellent choice for most places. Snake plants are great for darker offices and their air-purifying qualities make them ideal for the bedroom too.
