  1. Appearance: This cultivar showcases tall, erect leaves that are dark green with contrasting horizontal stripes of a lighter shade. The edges of the leaves are lined with a golden-yellow hue, giving it the "Black Gold" name.

  2. Size: Typical of many Sansevieria trifasciata varieties, the 'Black Gold' can grow quite tall, often reaching heights of 2 to 3 feet (60-90 cm) or more.

  3. Light Requirements: While it can tolerate a range of light conditions, from low light to bright indirect sunlight, direct sunlight can cause the leaves to scorch or lose their vibrant colors.

  4. Watering: Like all snake plants, 'Black Gold' is drought-tolerant and prefers to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, which is a common issue for Sansevierias if they're left in soggy soil.

  5. Soil: A well-draining potting mix, such as a cactus or succulent mix, is recommended. Good drainage is crucial to prevent root rot.

  6. Temperature: It prefers warm conditions and can handle temperatures ranging from 70°F to 90°F (21°C to 32°C) but can tolerate cooler temperatures down to 50°F (10°C).

  7. Toxicity: The 'Black Gold' snake plant, like other Sansevierias, is toxic when ingested. It can cause symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea in pets and humans.

  8. Air-Purifying Qualities: One of the standout attributes of snake plants is their air-purifying capabilities. They are capable of removing toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air. They also have the unique ability to produce oxygen during the night, unlike most plants that only do so during the day.

  9. Propagation: Propagation can be done through leaf cuttings or by division. However, when propagating through leaf cuttings, the resulting plants may not retain the variegation of the parent plant.

  10. Maintenance: Snake Plants, including the 'Black Gold' variety, are low maintenance. They don't require frequent watering, and they're resistant to most pests. However, it's a good practice to occasionally wipe down the leaves to remove dust.

  11. Pest Resistance: Generally resistant to pests, but it's always good to keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like mealybugs or spider mites.
