Laurentii Sanseveria

A  Sansevieria Plant, originally from South Africa, is another hardy almost impossible to kill houseplant that thrives on neglect.

A sansevieria can be placed anywhere in a room from the darkest corner to the brightest window. The better the light, the faster a sansevieria grows.

Over-watering is the main reason sansevieria plants die. Allow the soil to dry out before watering. During the winter, in a low light area, a sansevieria plant may need water only once a month.

Sansevierias grow well in temperatures between 60°F (15.5°C) and 85° F (29°C) Prefer low humidity.

Sansevieria plants may produce flowers every few years during the summer. Flower production occurs when the plant is in bright light and experiencing some stress. Stress for a Sansevieria might be severely dry soil or being root-bound in a small pot. The flowers of a Sansevieria, which appear as clusters on long spikes, are fragrant but not particularly pretty.
