Bird’s nest snake plant – Sansevieria hahnii is one of over 70 different species falling under the heading snake plant. These are native of subtropical areas in Europe, India, and Africa and do well in hot, dry, challenging climates with poor soil.
Hahnii is a sport or cultivar of the Sansevieria trifasciata Laurentii plant and a member of the family Asparagaceae, with several common names Bird’s Nest Sansevieria, Golden hahnii, Good Luck Plant, Dwarf Mother in Law’s Tongue and Dwarf Snake Plant. A relative of the agave plant, and in its native lands, some of the larger family members find use as a source of textile fiber. In hot locations (e.g., some areas of Florida, Arkansas and Arizona) Sansevieria grows as a perennial and used as a groundcover like ornamental grass.
