Snake Plants are prized for their low maintenance and refined looks, with many stylish varieties. Some are readily available, like the familiar ‘Laurentii’ and compact ‘Hahnii’.

But others are harder to find, like the gorgeous ‘Moonshine’ (Dracaena trifasciata ‘Moonshine’, formerly Sansevieria trifasciata ‘Moonshine’). This rare cultivar is rapidly gaining popularity among Snake Plant fans.

Moonshine, also known as the Silver Snake Plant has broad, upright, silvery gray-green leaves outlined with a thin, dark-green margin. 

It can grow to a little over two feet tall indoors, and its care is almost the same as for other Snake Plants.

Snake Plants are generally native to West Africa, Nigeria, and the Congo, where it is hot and dry with occasional monsoons. They are resilient, drought-tolerant succulents but need the right kind of care to keep their beautiful looks.

Moonshine needs more light than most other Snake Plant varieties since its leaves are light-colored and have less chlorophyll to make food energy.
