I asked this question in the Sansevieria forum, and I thought I would try posting it here as well.
My husband's grandmother unexpectedly died earlier this month, and they told me I could have any of her house plants that I wanted. I would've taken them all, but sadly, we didn't have room for them in our car. So I decided to settle for 2. I can vaguely remember my mother having some snake plants when I was growing up; however I've never had one of my own.
My questions are: 1) Can I put it outside? I do have a screened in porch that I could place it on, where it can either get direct sunlight or I can put it in the shade. I actually just saw one on someone's porch coming home, and I'm wondering if this is a good idea. The humidity here is already pretty high, and will stay that way probably until October or so.
2) Why are there broken up pieces of Styrofoam in the pot? It looks like there are some buried in the soil as well.
The longest stalk is 2' from soil to tip.
