Fun Facts

Hollywood's plant! Sansevieria has frequently been used as a set decoration in many films and TV shows, including: A Serbian Film, Being John Malkovich, Blue Velvet, Duck Soup, Groundhog Day, Homegrown, The Paper, and These Final Hours. Because the leaves of Sansevieria grow upwards, the plants can be used for feng shui purposes. Some believe that having Sansevieria near children helps reduce coarseness, although care must be taken to ensure the child cannot reach the plant's poisonous leaves. Others recommend placing pots near the toilet tank to counter the drain-down vibrations. A fibre is obtained from the leaves and is used for making mats, sails, cordage, coarse cloth and the production of paper pulp.
