Sansevieria Aubrytiana Care

This plant is highly tolerant to drought and salt exposure. Therefore, it can survive in dry, coastal environments.  You should keep it because it removes impurities in the air. Due to its drought tolerance, the snake plant doesn’t need much water, it should only be watered during the growing season using the soak-and-dry method, where you allow water from the previous drink to dry before giving it another drink.

This plant tolerates low light but doesn’t give the best results. The best results from this plant are achieved when you expose it to full sunlight. Abundant sunlight is also necessary for this plant’s flowering. Please protect it from the intense afternoon sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Sansevieria Aubrytiana Growth

You can propagate this plant by leaf cutting or division. It is best to divide the plant at the beginning of summer, its growing season. This season is suitable for propagation because both the mother and daughter plants recover quickly and grow. It is susceptible to attacks by mealybugs and scale insets.

Pruning and trimming are not essential for its well-being, but you can remove any dry leaves on the plant. Also, you can repot it any time it outgrows its pot.  It doesn’t need fertilizer except when you want to invigorate its growth when you might feed it with a dilute, liquid cactus fertilizer twice per month in its growing season as per need.
