Care

General Maintenance: This is a slow growing plant, and that means that if you intend to propagate it may take quite a bit of time. The best method is to allow some 'pups' to develop and then transplant them once they are an appropriate size. 

Temperature: Prefers temperature between 15° - 21° Celsius, and growth will be stunted at temperatures below 12°.

Light: A brightly lit spot without direct sunlight is preferred, but this plant can handle a bit of sun in the morning or evening. 

Watering: Water about once every 7 - 10 days, allowing the soil to completely dry between watering. In the winter months you can decrease the amount that you are watering. Overwatering is one of the most common issues with Sansevieria and can cause your plant to rot. 

Soil: Any fast draining, high quality potting soil will work well. To increase drainage consider mixing a generous amount of perlite or vermiculite into your soil. 

Fertilizer: Feed your plant once or twice a month from April to September with a high quality, general purpose houseplant fertilizer.
