About the plant:
Sansevieria, or tenura , is a genus of unpretentious succulent plants. They are among the hardiest houseplants (and perhaps that is why they are nicknamed mother-in-law's tongue ) native to Africa. The plant is ornamental with its long and hard sword-like leaves, which are characterized by their snake pattern (hence the English name snake plant) .
Sansevieria Golden Flame impresses with its "fiery" leaves, which are green with wide yellow stripes. Sansevieria is one of the favorite houseplants because it is almost indestructible.

The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.
We water slightly after the substrate has dried. The plant likes dry soil, so it won't get mad at you if you ever forget to water it.
It tolerates dry air well, does not require an increase in air humidity.
The simplest method of propagation is the division of bunches. It can also be propagated using leaf cuttings that are rooted in water or soil.
- Overwatering: Too much water can cause browning or yellowing of leaves and root rot.
