This strong and very decorative Sansevieria does not need much attention. The plant is naturally green and has now been colored with paint that feels like being felt! This color will grow out once, but it will take years.
Origin and care
The Sansevieria is originally from western Africa, from Nigeria to the Congo, and belongs to the Succulent family. Nowadays the Sansevieria is mainly imported from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Thailand and China.
Sanseveria comes in many shapes and sizes and has developed a completely unique style because of its modern shapes.
There are gray, green, yellow-green, twisted, rosette-shaped or with (artificially) colored tops. There is something for everyone from 20 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 fewer problems with a dry throat or skin.
Keep Sanseveria's evenly moist in the spring and summer. In their own environment these months usually correspond to the rainy season, the plant then grows actively. You keep the plant dry earlier in the fall and winter. As it were, simulate the dry season of the place of origin. The plant then goes to rest.
Sanseverias love light. Therefore give them a moderately light to light location. Sunlight is also possible. Since the Sanseveria is a tropical plant, the temperatures must not fall too low. During the day between 15 and 28 degrees Celsius and at night between 12 and 20 degrees Celsius.
Love these sansevieria plants. I thought the velvet effect was a natural attribute of the plant. Slightly disappointed that it isn't, but the plants really suit my decor, so I'm happy to have found these in such a variety of colours. Waiting for the white one to become available- it's on my wishlist! Fast delivery to the UK, too.
