Central Phoenix -- Sansevieria hallii is more freeze hardy than I would have thought. Ours is in a pot and survived the hard freeze of 2013 (several weeks of freezing nights with a low of 24 F) outside under a porch overhang with a light cover. After spending last year's mild winter outside with no protection, it is enjoying this winter in a pop-up greenhouse. It grows in dense shade most of the day, with some afternoon sun in summer. It is watered every week or two in summer. This is a slow-growing plant and ours has grown from two original stems in 2012 to six.
