Sansevieria 'Fernwood' Mikado
Origin and care
The Sansevieria originates from 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 individual style through its modern forms.
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 air humidity will also be improved so that you will 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 grows actively. During the autumn and winter you keep the plant dry. Simulate, as it were, the dry season of the place of origin. The plant then goes to rest.
Sanseverias like light. Give them a moderately light to light place. Sunlight can also. Since the Sanseveria is a tropical plant, the temperatures must not drop too low. During the day between 15 and 28 degrees Celsius and at night between 12 and 20 degrees Celsius.
