It is an evergreen herbaceous perennial plant forming dense stands, spreading by way of its creeping rhizome, which is sometimes above ground, sometimes underground.

Planting and care

Sansevieria can be divided easily during repotting. Alternatively, new shoots, which emerge from the soil as spikes, can be taken and potted independently. They are rapid growers once established. Cuttings can also be taken, but it s much easier to rely on division.

Pot the snake plant in a clay container that is wider than it is tall, since the root system is shallow. Choose a pot the same diameter or one size larger than the plant’s current container. Plastic is not the best choice for these plants, because strong roots can easily crack and break weak pots.

Sunlight: sansevieria prefers bright light with some sun. They can adapt to full sun.
Soil: A loose, well-drained potting mix.Sandier soil is good for them.
Water: Let the soil dry between waterings. During winter, reduce watering to monthly, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch. Err on the side of underwatering.
Temperature: They prefer warmth and will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 50ºF.
Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.

Caring for Sansevieria trifasciata Black Gold
