The Sayuri Snake Plant, botanically known as Sansevieria sayuri, is also commonly known as the Sansevieria Silver Siam or a type of Mother-in-law’s tongue. Producing elegant erect blades in shades of green and silver earned it its other common name, ‘Metallica’. Being tolerant of different light conditions and its ability to be slightly neglected when it comes to watering makes this an easy houseplant to grow.

Best Locations For Growing Sayuri Snake Plant

Being tolerant of most growing conditions, the Sayuri Snake Plant can be grown in most rooms. However, being toxic to humans and pets, care should be taken when growing this plant around children or animals. 

Sayuri Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements

The Sayuri Snake Plant is adaptable to most light levels. Although preferring bright, but indirect light, it can cope with low to medium light conditions as well. Just don’t let it receive any strong south-facing direct light, which can harm its striking foliage.  

Sayuri Snake Plant Care

Originating from West Africa, the Sayuri Snake Plant prefers to be kept warm, at a temperature between 65 to 85 °F. Tolerant of most humidity levels, this snake plant tends to grow well in any household environment without the need to be misted. The Sayuri Snake Plant is hardy and tough, but keep it away from any cold drafts as this can cause the plant to struggle. Any dead, damaged or overly large leaves can be removed by cutting away at the base using a pair of clean and sharp scissors or a knife. 

Watering Sayuri Snake Plant

As with most snake plants, the Sayuri Snake Plant prefers its soil to be on the drier side and watering is only recommended once the top inch or two of soil has dried out. Being sensitive to overwatering and root rot, any excess water must be allowed to drain away freely before placing it back in its decorative pot. Depending on the growing conditions, water this plant every 2 weeks during the warmer months and every 3 to 4 weeks during winter, although if the soil is still moist it is best to wait until it dries out until watering again.

Feeding Sayuri Snake Plant

Although not strictly necessary, feeding during the growing season can encourage strong growth and the colorful foliage for which it is grown. From spring until fall, this Sayuri Snake Plant can be fed with a balanced houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4 to 6 weeks.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
