  • Snake Plant Sansevieria Zeylanica, or bowstring hemp, is an evergreen member of the Asparagaceae family. Native to the tropical West African region, Zeylanica has long, pointy, sword-like dark green leaves with creamy white wavy stripes. This plant is tough and hardy. It requires very little care and makes for a perfect houseplant for beginners or people with a busy lifestyle.

    As a Snake Plant, Zeylanica is one of the most effective air-purifying plants. Sansevieria species can remove common airborne toxins and clean your indoor air.

    Zeylanica produces greenish-white, fragrant flowers, but it is extremely rare for this plant to bloom. Note: The item displayed is 6".
  • Sansevieria Zeylanica prefers many bright, indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates different lighting conditions. Deep shade, however, can make the leaves darker. Avoid harsh direct sun to prevent scorching leaves.

    Sansevieria Zeylanica needs watering about once per week. Only water when the soil is dry to the touch. Drain well after each watering. Water more in the growing season (spring/summer)and less in the cold months.

    The best soil for this plant is well-drained, porous potting soil that can promote healthy root development. A sandy succulent potting soil mix is ideal for Zeylanica.

    This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 60°F-75°F). This plant does not grow well when the temperature drops below 50°F. Zeylanica thrives in normal indoor humidity, avoid putting this plant in spots with high humidity.

    This plant should be fertilized once per month 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.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging:

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
