Sammy The Snake Plant

SANSEVIERIA LIGHTING

Sammy likes sunlight but, he is pretty versatile so will take low light conditions as well. As long as you avoid mid day direct sunlight he will be absolutely fine.

SANSEVIERIA WATERING

In the summer from March to September, we recommend watering every 2-3 weeks. So, there's no need to worry if you're off on holiday.

In the winter from October to February reduce watering to every 4-6 weeks. Watering more than this might cause Sammy's roots to rot, so hold back on the watering. Houseplant watering guide

SANSEVIERIA HUMIDITY

Sammy will tolerate normal room humidity or slightly higher humidity will be just fine.

FERTILISER FOR YOUR SANSEVIERIA 

From March to August give Sammy some houseplant fertiliser every two months when watering.

REPOTTING YOUR SANSEVIERIA

When Sammy's roots start to come out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot, it is time for repotting, this will most probably be every 5-10 Years. For soil, a well drained potting soil with a cactus mix is perfect.

SANSEVIERIA CARE PROBLEMS

  • Leaves burning from direct sunlight.

  • Overwatering causing roots to rot.
