Sansevieria Black Gold is a cultivar of Trifasciata Snake Plant. This plant has long sword-shaped blackest green leaves with golden edges that can grow up to 3 feet long. Like other plants in the Sansevieria family, Black Gold is very resilient and forgiving. It thrives even in low light spots and needs very little care.
Sansevieria Black Gold is very compact. It fits well in small spaces and makes for a perfect plant for home and office. Plus, as a Snake Plant, Black Gold is among the best air-purifying plants, according to a study by NASA.
Black Gold produces white-green flowers, but it is extremely rare for this plant to bloom.
Black Gold grows best in bright, indirect light, but it also tolerates low light conditions and fluorescent lighting. If grown outdoors, put this plant in a partially shady spot to avoid harsh direct sunlight.
Snake Plants have a low watering need. Drain well after each watering. Water thoroughly and let the soil dry completely before the next watering.
Snake Plants are vulnerable to root rot, so they need well-drained, porous potting soil.
Snake Plants grow best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-85°F). They are not frost-tolerant and do not grow well when the temperature drops below 55°F. Avoid high humidity.
Black Gold Snake Plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant is mildly toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.
