If you would like a beautiful and structural plant that you can forget about, this is perfect! Sansevieria thrive on neglect and are popular because they do well in various light conditions. They will adapt to low light but thrive best in bright sunlight. Sansevieria plants can go for several weeks without water, and most people tend to overwater them.
Helpful Tip: The leaves will fold if overwatered and tend to curl if it needs more water.
