Sansevieria trifasciata Gold Flame is a variegated, hybrid Snake Plant species with sword-shaped dark green leaves and vertical bright yellow stripes. New leaves emerging from the center of the foliage are usually fully yellow. They gradually turn green, making this plant look like a burning flame, hence the name. Like other plants in the Sansevieria family, Gold Flame is very resilient and forgiving. It thrives even in low light spots and needs very little care.
The color contrast between vivid yellow and dark green makes Gold Flame one of the most impressive varieties in the Sansevieria family. This plant can grow up to 17 inches in height and 6 inches in width. It fits well in small spaces and makes for a perfect plant for homes and offices.
This slow-growing, easy-care, and compact plant is also a very effective natural air-purifier recommended by NASA.
Gold Flame loves bright to moderate indirect light, but it also tolerates lower light conditions. Avoid harsh direct sunlight.
Snake Plants have a low watering need. Drain well after each watering. Water thoroughly and let the soil dry completely before the next watering.
Snake Plants are vulnerable to root rot, so they need well-drained, porous potting soil.
Snake Plants grow best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-85°F). They are not frost-tolerant and do not grow well when the temperature drops below 55°F. Avoid high humidity.
Snake Plants should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant is mildly toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
