I have a snake plant that is a division of an original snake plant I purchased many years ago. It's been potted in this pot for well over a year, and has what looks like lots of new, very green and healthy, growth in the center. But there's this stalk-like structure that looks like what the main root normally looks like... and it's in between the bottom leaves and the new section of growth. It looks almost like the plant was dying and then started from scratch above the older leaves, I don't know how else to describe it! Why is it growing like this, and what can I do to make sure it stays happy and healthy?! Thank you!

I'm not sure what you are seeing that is troubling to you, but I can assure you that your plant is fine and healthy. Continue to do what you have been doing for the past year. No need to fix something that is not a problem.

It's called stacking in Sansevieria. Not sure what causes it but I wouldn't worry about it.

Ahh.. stacking! I had no idea what to call it to even look for more information. Thank you for sharing that and for reassuring me that there's nothing wrong Smiling
