Whether placed amidst a vibrant plant collection or standing alone in its elegant simplicity, ‘La Rubia’ enriches the surroundings with its refreshing presence and visual charm.

Caring for your Sansevieria Trifasciata

Sansevieria trifasciata requires very little care to survive. This hardy plant can tolerate drought, low humidity, and even neglect for months at a time. However, proper drainage is essential, especially if the plant is placed in a saucer or other container that retains water.

Light

In their native habitat, they receive varying degrees of sunlight. Still, as they are popular as indoor plants, full sunlight may be too much for them to handle year-round.

Sansevieria trifasciata can tolerate low levels of light, but it does best in bright indirect sunlight. If placed in a window that receives morning or afternoon sun, the leaves may burn. If you are growing indoors, try to locate it near a window with very little direct sunlight.

Water

Like most succulents, snake plants requires little watering. Watering can be increased during the summer months when it is growing actively. During the winter months, water your Sansevieria less frequently or not at all.

Soil

Sansevieria trifasciata is native to rocky areas of tropical Africa, which have loose, well-drained soil that does not retain water. Although you can use almost any soil for this plant, it will not tolerate soggy soils or being planted in pots that do not drain well.

Fertilizer

Sansevieria require very little fertilizing as they are not heavy feeders. It is recommended that you occasionally use fertilizer during the summer growing season to maintain blooms and healthy foliage, but it is unnecessary.

Suppose you are growing sansevieria in potting soil purchased at a garden center or plant nursery. In that case, there is no need to use fertilizer. However, suppose you are using organic compost to fill your pot. In that case, you may need to add an organic fertilizer every 6-8 weeks during the summer months. Do not use chemical fertilizers, or you will risk burning your plant’s leaves.

Pests, Disease, and Common Issues

Sansevieria trifasciata is prone to few issues that may affect its health or its growth. Snails and slugs are attracted to the succulent flesh of the plant. They can be controlled with a solution of soap and water or simply hand-picking them off the plant.

Aphids and mealybugs are also attracted to this plant due to its succulent leaves. To control them, use an insecticidal soap spray or dust made from neem. Both are natural pesticides that are effective against most pests without risking damage to your plants.

The most common affliction of sansevierias is overwatering. These plants can go months without water, and too much will leave their roots soggy and prone to rotting.

Pruning

Sansevieria has visually attractive foliage, and many collectors enjoy it for its colorful appearance. However, its leaves will not grow back once they have been trimmed. Therefore, it is unnecessary to prune this plant, but it may be pruned for aesthetic reasons if a leaf burns or dies.

Propagating

Sansevieria can be propagated by dividing clumps of upright stems that have developed into individual plants or from leaf cuttings taken in spring or summer. The easiest way to divide a clump is to use a very sharp knife and slice it off at ground level. Next, use pieces with four or five upright stems each and pot them up individually.

Potting / Repotting

For Sansevierias repotting is recommended every 2-3 years to avoid crowded roots and provide enough space for the roots to grow and create new healthy tissue. Take a large pot with holes in the bottom and fill it with your favorite potting soil mix to repot Sansevieria.

    I ordered this plant in January, but I live in Iowa where the weather is 70 one day and 28 the next during this time. Plantvine sent out an email letting me know that the forecast wasn’t going to be above 40° at night for 4 days in a row and would wait until the weather was more accommodating. I just want to say that I am SO grateful they did this. It shows they truly care about their customers and their plants. So she finally arrived and unboxing my plant(s) was like opening a birthday gift! I was so excited. She was absolutely beautiful. I cannot wait to watch her grow!!!! Thank you so much for your amazing customer service and for sending me weekly updates on whether or not the plants could be shipped! I recommend you to all my other plant loving friends. 🪴
