Sansevieria are some of the easiest plants to maintain, and while they thrive with a small degree of neglect, they still deliver on style. Also known as Sansevieria trifasciata, the Zeylanica Snake Plant has tall, broad leaves that are thin. The coloration of the foliage alternates between dark and light green. Snake Plants are slow growers but are very adaptable and can live in various conditions.
Best Locations For Growing Zeylanica Snake Plant
The Zeylanica Snake Plant is good for a sunny spot or a challenging area where other plants fail to thrive. Sansevieria grows best in a brightly lit, arid location, but this plant can handle lower light and humidity. Plants in less-than-perfect conditions may grow more slowly, but you can still enjoy the statuesque greenery.
Zeylanica Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements
Bright indirect light is good for Zeylanica Snake Plants. Snake Plants can live in medium and low light, but growth may be slow. Direct sunlight is too much and may burn the foliage.
Zeylanica Snake Plant Care
Perhaps the best care tip for Snake Plants is to leave them alone. The Zeylanica Snake Plant is not fussy and is not high maintenance. Clean the foliage using a damp cloth to remove dust buildup and help the plant undergo photosynthesis.
Watering Zeylanica Snake Plant
Zeylanica Snake Plants have low water needs and prefer dry, arid conditions. Wait until the soil is completely dry before watering. Under-watering is better than over-watering, so it is best to wait another day or two if you are unsure about when to water.
Feeding Zeylanica Snake Plant
Give the plant a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 3 to 4 weeks during the growing season. Sansevieria does not require fertilizer, but they will grow more quickly when well fed. Do not feed Snake Plants when they are not actively growing.
