No indoor collection is complete without the addition of this iconic houseplant. Its modern architectural lines make it a favorite for indoor décor. Place this mid-century classic in narrow areas or tall bare spaces that need a bit of dressing up. The low-maintenance nature of the sanseviera is just one of the many attributes that make it the perfect plant for new plant parents.
Place the sanseviera in a container with good drainage it hates to have wet feet so water moderately. Water when the top two inches of soil feels dry to the touch. Place in a location with high light, such as a south-facing window. If the plant does not get enough light, you will see that upright foliage will start to grow weak, thin, and eventually bend over. Fertilize the plant periodically with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. Follow the product label instructions for strength and frequency.
