  1. Appearance: The leaves are upright, broad, and have a deep dark green, almost black hue, with subtle horizontal patterns or bands across the leaves.

  2. Size: Like other Sansevieria species, the Black Robusta can grow tall, with some leaves reaching several feet in height.

  3. Light Requirements: It can tolerate a range of lighting conditions from low light to bright indirect light. However, it's essential to avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  4. Watering: Being a type of succulent, Black Robusta requires minimal water. Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, a common issue for snake plants.

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

  6. Temperature: They prefer warmer conditions but are very hardy and can tolerate a range. Protect them from frost and extremely cold temperatures.

  7. Toxicity: Like other snake plants, the Black Robusta is toxic when ingested. It's best to keep them away from pets and children.

  8. Air-Purifying Qualities: Sansevieria species are often praised for their air-purifying abilities. They can filter out certain toxins from the air and have the unique capability of producing oxygen at night, unlike most plants which only do so during the day.

  9. Propagation: Propagation can be achieved through division or leaf cuttings, although note that plants grown from leaf cuttings often don't retain the variegation or specific colors of the parent plant.

  10. Maintenance: This plant requires minimal maintenance. Occasionally, you might want to wipe down the leaves to remove dust.

  11. Pest Resistance: One of the advantages of the snake plant is its resistance to most pests. Still, always keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like mealybugs or spider mites.
