Please Identify Mysterious Plant

Hey Judy! Thank you so much for running this website. I have looked everywhere and can’t figure out what the name of this plant is. A friend gave it to me.. Can you please help? Thank you


Your plant looks like a Bird’s Nest Snake Plant, which is a type of Sansevieria trifasciata. You can read all of my care tips for Snake Plants in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of a totally different variety but the care is the same.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
