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 for a more modern vibe.

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.

Please note: some scarring may occur on the leaves.

Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering. Water thoroughly and allow to drain freely. Don’t allow the plant to sit in water as this will cause root rot.


This Snake Plant is happy in places with temperatures between 15°C and 23°C and as low as 10°C for short periods.


The Fernwood Mikado will do fine in normal household humidity. Avoid humid locations but if brown tips develop, consider occasional misting.
