Origin and care
The Sansevieria originates from the west of Africa, from Nigeria to the Congo, and belongs to the Succulent family. Today, the Sansevieria is mainly imported from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Thailand and China.
Sanseveria comes in many shapes and sizes and has developed its own style through its modern shapes.
There are gray, green, yellow-green, twisted, rosette-shaped or with (artificial) colored tips. There is something for everyone from 5 cm to 120 cm, thick and thin, etc. Due to its air-purifying qualities, the oxygen content in the house is increased. The humidity is also improved so that you have less problems with a dry throat or skin.
Keep Sanseverias evenly moist in spring and summer. In their own environment, these months usually correspond to the rainy season, when the plant is actively growing. During the autumn and winter you keep the plant dry earlier. Simulate the dry season of the place of origin, as it were. The plant then goes into rest.
Sanseverias love light. Therefore give them a moderately light to light position. Sunlight is also possible. Since the Sanseveria is a tropical plant, the temperatures should not drop too low. During the day between 15 and 28 degrees Celsius and at night between 12 and 20 degrees Celsius.
