Light: Sansevieria are known for being plants that can withstand low light conditions.

Be sure to keep your plant out of any direct sun though, as the white segments of the leaf are delicate and will burn. 

Water: Sansevieria trifasciata 'Bantel's Sensation', like other Sansevieria, wants to go completely dry in-between watering. Make sure your plant is potted in a well draining mix, a succulent mix is a great choice.
