  • Snake Plant Sansevieria Zeylanica, or bowstring hemp, is an evergreen member of the Asparagaceae family. Native to the tropical West African region, Zeylanica has long, pointy, sword-like dark green leaves with creamy white wavy stripes. This plant is tough and hardy. It requires very little care and makes for a perfect houseplant for beginners or people with a busy lifestyle.

    As a Snake Plant, Zeylanica is one of the most effective air-purifying plants. Sansevieria species can remove common airborne toxins and clean your indoor air.

     Zeylanica produces greenish-white, fragrant flowers, but it is extremely rare for this plant to bloom

  • Sansevieria Zeylanica prefers many bright, indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates different lighting conditions. Deep shade, however, can make the leaves darker. Avoid harsh direct sun to prevent scorching leaves.

    Sansevieria Zeylanica needs watering about once per week. Only water when the soil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering. Water more in the growing season (spring/summer)and less in the cold months.

    The best soil for this plant is well-drained, porous potting soil that can promote healthy root development. A sandy succulent potting soil mix is ideal for Zeylanica.

    This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 60°F-75°F). This plant does not grow well when the temperature drops below 50°F. Zeylanica thrives in normal indoor humidity, avoid putting this plant in spots with high humidity.

    This plant should be fertilized once per month 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.
