The Sansevieria Fernwood/Mikado has tall, cylindrical, smooth, green-grey striped leaves. This variety is compact and is recognizable by the purple leaf sheaths at the base of its sprouting leaves. 


Type: Tropical 
Height: 12in - 48in
Spread: 10in - 12in 
Zone: 9 - 11
Pet Safe: Sansevieria can be toxic to pets if ingested in large amounts. 


General Maintenance: These plants like to be somewhat root bound, but if your plant is consistently yellowing or losing leaves you may need to repot. Can be propagated by leaf cuttings or division. Pruning is not often necessary, cut away any dead leaves and anything that is starting to flop over. Healthy leaves that start to droop can be used as cuttings!

Temperature: Prefers temperatures between 15° - 24° Celsius. Anything below 10° will start to damage your plant. 

Light: These plants prefer a brightly lit spot without direct sun, but can handle a bit of morning or evening sun. 

Watering: Water once every 7 - 10 days, allowing the soil to completely dry between watering. In the winter months you may only have to water once every two weeks or less. These plants often can rot due to excessive watering. 

Soil: Prefers a high quality, fast draining soil. A one-to-one mix of potting soil and cactus mix works well, or simply mixing a large amount of vermiculite or perlite into your soil. A high quality succulent or cactus mix should also work well on its own. 

Fertilizer: Use a general purpose, high quality houseplant fertilizer once a month during spring and summer.
