Caring for a snake plant (we offer the Sansevieria Laurentii and the Sansevieria Zeylanica) is relatively easy. The plant is robust and requires little attention.

Here is a quick care guide:

  1. Location : Place the snake plant in a bright location, without direct sunlight. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can burn the leaves. However, these plants are quite tolerant of different light conditions.
  2. Temperature : Bow hemp prefers a temperature between 18°C ​​and 24°C. They also tolerate occasional temperature fluctuations, but should be protected from drafts.
  3. Watering : Mineral substrate allows good drainage. Allow the top layer of the substrate to dry slightly between waterings. Then water thoroughly, but avoid standing water in the saucer as snake plants can develop root rot. In general, it is better to underwater than overwater. We recommend watering only via the water tank.
  4. Fertilization : During the growing season (spring and summer), fertilize your snake plant approximately every 6-8 weeks with a liquid houseplant fertilizer suitable for succulents or with our AIRY Booster. In autumn and winter, it needs less fertilizer or can even do without it altogether.
  5. Pests and diseases : Snake plants are fairly hardy to pests and diseases, but occasionally they can be attacked by spider mites or mealybugs. Inspect the plant regularly for signs of pests and treat with a mild insecticide or neem oil if necessary. Cut off and remove rotten or mushy leaves immediately at the base.
  6. Cleaning : The shiny leaves of the snake plant can collect dust. Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to keep them clean.

Follow these guidelines and your Sansevieria Laurentii should grow healthy and happy in mineral substrate.
