This is easy and forgiving as a houseplant, like all the sansevieriae.

This sansevieria spreads by aerial stolons -- which are runners in mid air or on the surface. In most sans babies just pop up out of the ground around their mother.

My cat ate half a teaspoon worth of this plant to no ill effect.
