Sansevieria Zeylanica (Snake Plant)
Sansevieras have become a bit of a 'gotta catch 'em all' in my personal collection, because their leaf patterns are striking, they tolerate low light and love to be neglected. What more could you want? Zeylanica are a pretty variety that is all green without the characteristic yellow edges of a laurentii or superba. Avoid overwatering, these babies really don't need much! It is normal to see some small spots of 'scarring' on the leaves of a sanseviera. Don't worry, these won't hurt the plant!
Water: Once potting mix has fully dried out. Needs a free draining mix as they hate to sit in damp soil.
- Light: Will tolerate low light but will grow best in medium indirect light.
- Temperature/Humidity: Keep temperatures above 10°C. Non-fussy about humidity.
- Pets: Mildly toxic if eaten. Keep out of reach of fluffy friends and children!
- Feeding: Feed once a month maximum during peak growing season. Dilute your plant food to 1/4 strength.
