Sansevieria Fernwood Mikado
Origin and care
The Sansevieria is native to western Africa, from Nigeria to 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 a completely unique style due to its modern shapes.
There are gray, green, yellow-green, twisted, rosette-shaped or with (artificially) colored buds. 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 suffer less from a dry throat or skin.
Keep Sanseverias evenly moist in the spring and summer. In their own environment these months usually correspond to the rainy season, the plant then actively grows. During the autumn and winter you keep the plant dry earlier. Simulate, as it were, the dry season of the place of origin. The plant then goes to rest.
Most Sansevierias don't grow taller than 1 meter. Pruning is therefore not necessary. Of course you can always remove brown leaves.
The sansevieria does well in any location. Only a cold spot is not really ideal.
The sansevieria does not need much nutrition. In the growing season from April to July you can supplement the plant once a month.
Sanseverias love light. Therefore give them a moderately light to light location. Sunlight is also possible. Since the Sanseveria is a tropical plant, temperatures should not drop too low. During the day between 15 and 28 degrees Celsius and at night between 12 and 20 degrees Celsius.
Sansevieria is strong and almost indestructible.
