Planting and care

The biggest danger is over watering, especially in the winter.

Sansevieria trifasciata Black Gold 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.
Watering 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.
Soil A loose, well-drained potting mix.Sandier soil is good for them.
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.
