Sansevieria ehrenbergii

Origin: Somalia

Family: Asparagaceae

Description :

Sansevieria ehrenbergii 'Banana' is a dwarf, slow-growing succulent with fat, boat-shaped leaves. It is called "Banana" because of its shape. Leaves are gray-green to blue-green, deeply channeled on the upper surface, and curved like a banana.

Sometimes called blue sansevieria or sword sanseveria, it has long, blade-like leaves.The shape of this plant is unusual, with layers of leaves stacked one upon the next. It makes a beautiful centerpiece of a succulent garden. But don’t forget that it can be grown indoors as well. This air-purifying plant makes for an eye-dazzling houseplant too!”

 

Height: 20-30 cm tall

Light: Sansevieria thrives in just about any light. Bright light to full sun, will also tolerate low light. It an excellent choice for low light conditions

Water: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out between watering during the growing season. In winter, water just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Over watering will cause root rot. Take care not to water the center of the rosette of leaves because they'll rot easily if kept wet.

Humidity: Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist your plant more frequently in the summer growing season- the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Temperature: Sansevieria pinguicula are easy to cultivate, but extremely slow growing and requires warm temperatures to grow.

Soil: A loose, well-drained potting mix. It can easily grow in soil-less medium also.

Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.

Eliminates: Sansevieria species are believed to act as good air purifiers by removing toxins (such as formaldehyde, xylene and toluene) from the air. The plant convert CO2 to oxygen at night also.

Sansevierias, apart from being a great air purifier, thrive with minimal care and live for many years, making it the perfect houseplant!

Place sansevierias in moderately bright or filtered light. Good location would be a north-facing window or in front of a bright and sunny window. Although the plant is known to tolerate very low light levels, bright light brings out the colours in the leaves while also keeping it healthy. Keep them away from direct sun.

Allow the soil to go completely dry before watering. When you do water it, make sure to. Water it deeply enough for the water to come out of the drainage hole. Never allow water to stagnate on top of the soil or do not make the soil soggy as that will lead to root rot. You can water it once a week in summers and once in 2 weeks in winters if kept in bright filtered light. After watering the plant, make sure to keep it in a bright area.

Use a fast and well draining soil to keep your Sansevieria as root rot is one of the main reason that kills the plant. You can fertilise it once a month.
