Sansevieria Cylindrica Waves 12cm Pot
A succulent plant, Sanseverira produces long, spear-like leaves that are said to resemble snakeskin, making them an attractive addition to the home.
Their colour is deeper when out of direct sunlight which can make them fade. A fool proof plant that thrives on neglect, Sanseveira can survive long periods of drought, irregular feeding, and perform better when pot-bound. They'll also grow in shade or bright light which is why they make an excellent houseplant.
Many gardeners have known for years that Sansevieria is a great plant for the bedroom, helping you to get a good, restful night's sleep, and now we know why.
A 20-year study by NASA has shown that one of their most useful features is their ability to keep the air inside your home clean, removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene, and giving out valuable oxygen at night. Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, Sanseveira cylindrica 'Waves' will grow to a height of about 1m.
Keep pot bound in a clay pot and you may be rewarded with highly fragrant, jasmine-scented flowers in the summer!
Note: Decorative pot in images is for display purposes only and is not supplied.
- Keep plants in the temperature range of 15-27°C for the best growth - they are frost tender and dislike the cold
- Best grown in a clay pot as the strong rhizomes will push plastic pots out of shape
- Very tolerant of a wide range of conditions, Sansevieria will excel when grown near a bright east or south facing windowsill, out of direct sunlight
- Allow the soil to dry between watering and take care not to over water in winter when the plants are relatively dormant
- Repot only when the plant has filled its pot to capacity - you'll know it's time when the plant begins to force its way out of the existing container!
- Feed with a general-purpose plant food during the summer
- Over winter, reduce watering to once a month or so - let the compost dry out between watering
