  1. Appearance: This plant's leaves are thick, tubular, and spike upwards, similar to the tentacles of a sea star or starfish. They can grow quite long, and typically they form in a rosette pattern.

  2. Size: Snake Plant Starfish generally remains compact compared to some other Sansevieria species. The tubular leaves can grow up to about 7 inches (18 cm) long.

  3. Light Requirements: Like other snake plants, the Starfish Sansevieria is quite adaptable. It can thrive in bright, indirect light but also tolerates low light conditions. However, too much direct sunlight can cause its leaves to turn yellow.

  4. Watering: Sansevieria plants are succulent in nature, meaning they store water in their leaves. Overwatering can lead to root rot. It's crucial to allow the soil to dry out thoroughly between waterings. They can tolerate drought quite well.

  5. Soil: A well-draining potting mix is best. You can use a general potting soil mixed with some sand or perlite, or use cactus/succulent mix.

  6. Temperature and Humidity: These plants prefer warm conditions and don't fare well in temperatures below 50°F (10°C). They can adapt to a variety of humidity levels.

  7. Toxicity: Like other Sansevieria species, the Snake Plant Starfish is toxic when ingested. It can cause gastrointestinal upset in pets and humans.

  8. Propagation: Starfish Sansevieria can be propagated by division. This means separating the plant's pups or offshoots from the main plant and repotting them.

  9. Benefits: Snake plants, including the Starfish variety, are often noted for their air-purifying qualities. They are known to remove toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air and uniquely continue to produce oxygen during the night (unlike most plants, which produce oxygen during the day through photosynthesis).

  10. Growth Rate: Like most Sansevieria, the growth rate is relatively slow, especially when kept in low light conditions.
