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 its 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 current container of a plant. 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 50 degrees F.
Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.

Caring for Sansevieria trifasciata Hahnii

  • Place sansevierias in moderately bright or filtered light. Good locations include a spot in front of a north-facing window or in front of a bright, sunny window covered by a sheer curtain.
  • Although the plant tolerates low light, bright light brings out the colors in the leaves. However, intense light may cause the edges of the leaves to turn yellow.
  • Allow the soil to dry completely before watering, and then water deeply until water drips through the drainage hole. Allow the pot to drain and then discard water that remains in the saucer.
  • Never allow the soil to become soggy and never let the pot stand in water. Water sparingly throughout the winter.
  • Like most succulent plants that store water in their leaves, sansevieria rots quickly in the excessively wet soil. Place sansevieria in average room temperatures.
  • Protect the plant from drafts and cold temperatures as it is damaged at temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Feed the plant once every three weeks throughout the summer.
  • Use a general-purpose fertilizer for houseplants diluted to one-half the strength suggested on the container.
  • Sansevieria is a light feeder and too much fertilizer makes the leaves fall over.
