Propagated Sansevieria Plants

These plants originate from Africa, India and Indonesia, and variations in a few species continue to increase because they are popular cultivated plants. Most varieties are hard to find and the few that are common often have the reputation as being indestructible as house plants. They may occasionally flower with a spike of white flowers that may have a very sweet odor. A plants willingness to produce flowers will vary greatly, and they may be beautiful healthy growing plants for decades without making any flowers.

The few varieties common in propagation can suffer a wide range of desperate conditions like too much or too little water, but as with other plants they will live better with good care. They will do well with plenty of water in the growing seasons, and then only occasional small amounts of water in the winter months. When temperatures are cooler these plants go into a period of rest and dry soil will keep them healthier and help avoid fungal infections on their roots. They will tolerate a wide range of light conditions, but will look their best growing in filtered sun light. Prolonged exposure to direct sun light may damage their leaves and give them a less colorful appearance.

Sansevieria are great house plants and in addition to their easy care temperaments they also improve air quality. These plants are like living natural air purifiers and are considered to be the best genus of plants at removing impurities from the air. Perhaps, they should be considered among the best of all house plants, because They remove contamination from the air at a faster rate than any other kinds of plants.
