LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Sansevierias do best in moderate to bright indirect light. However, they will do fine in low light areas and can also withstand full sun.

OPTIMUM TEMPERATURE
Conditions ranging from 55-85 degrees are fine for the Sansevieria, however, they prefer warmer temperatures.

PLANT FOOD
Fertilize your plant twice a year with a general purpose plant food.

ADDITIONAL CARE
Sansevierias are an easy, hardy plant and don’t require any additional care.

TOXICITY
Sansevierias are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
