Sansevieria 'Robusta' Care Guide

  • Medium

    Best in medium light, but can survive in a range of low to high.

  • Low

    Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

  • Low

    Prefers low humidity.

  • 60 to 80

    Keep this plant in rooms where the temperature is a comfortable 60°F-75°F and avoid cold drafts or air vents below 55°F.

  • 9|10|11

    Outside: Keep it in dappled shade (early morning sun) to full shade on a patio out of direct sunlight to prevent leaf burn where nights are above 55°F.

  • Seasonally

    Fertilize sparingly in the spring and summer apply at half-strength a balanced, liquid fertilizer especially formulated for indoor plants and let the rest of the year.

  • 3 Years

    When receiving the Snake plant, do not repot immediately but wait at least 6-12 months. They like to be a bit root-bound. Repot in the spring, using a 2" bigger pot to keep the roots drier. (Too big of a pot could cause the soil to dry slower, which is not helpful.) Use a succulent soilless potting mix with perlite to help with drainage. Place a piece of screening at the bottom of the container over the drainage hole to secure the soil and allow it to drain.

    Use a well-draining cacti and succulent potting mix with perlite to help with drainage.

    Water your plant in the old pot before transferring over and let it sit an hour.

    Add cacti and succulent soil to the bottom to elevate the root ball. Lift the plant and release the roots against the existing planter. Use a clean knife or garden trowel to wedge between the pot and the soil to loosen.

    Inspect the roots. Notice if there are any dead or rotting roots and trim off with sterile pruners.

    Ensure the plant is sitting about 1 inch below the edge of the pot to avoid water spillage. Add more soil and backfill around the sides by tamping down. Fill up to the soil line but not over.

    Water thoroughly, leaving the soil damp but not soggy. If settling occurs, add more soil.

    Water well to dampen the soil and let it drain.

  • Monthly

    To clean the leaves and alleviate dust particles, give it a shower from above. Fill a watering can with filtered, distilled or tap water that has been sitting for 24 hours. Place the plant in a sink and lightly wash the leaves with a shower spray end watering can.

    Trim off discolored spots with a sterile knife. Remove any debris from the soil and replenish soil if needed. Inspect for any insects at this time.

  • Cuttings

    Cut a leaf off at the base and place it in a container tall enough to hold the leaf upright. Add about an inch of water at the bottom and change the water weekly. Keep the leaf in medium indirect sunlight while it's beginning to form roots. Once roots are at least 1-2 inches long, plant it with rooting hormone mixed into the well-draining succulent and cacti mix. Water and place in bright to medium, indirect light. Use a wooden dowel to train it to stand upright until the roots are more anchored and secure.
