Zeylanica Snake Plants for Sale Online
The Sansevieria Zeylanica is a low light, drought-tolerant houseplant with variegated tiger-striped foliage. People love this plant for its sleek look, staggering heights, and ability to clean the air of toxins.
Zeylanica Snake Plants are an extremely easy, low maintenance plant, and they are nearly impossible to kill.
These hardy succulent-leaved indoor plants originate from dry desert environments. Because of this, we recommend watering your plant about once every three weeks. Additionally, to avoid root rot, we recommend planting your Sansevieria plant in a well draining, sandy loam potting mix. Using a pot with drainage holes can also help to avoid issues.
This plant will do best in medium to bright indirect sunlight. However, this light is not necessary for the snake's success. In fact, Sansevieria are one of the only plants who can survive in a room without any sunlight at all! This makes the Zeylanica Snakes the perfect addition to low-lit spaces.
Also known as Mother-in-law's Tongue or Viper's bowstring hemp, Sansevieria have been popular houseplants for decades. You should fertilize your plant in the growing seasons of spring and summer. Additionally, you only need to repot them when your plant has gone root bound.
It is important to note that although they filter the air, they are mildly toxic if consumed by pets or kids.
