Sansevieria Fernwood Care
Sunlight: 6-8 hours of bright, filtered sunlight is needed for Sansevieria Fernwood’s healthy growth. Sansevierias like direct sun too but, direct afternoon sun can lead to sunburn. If you want to expose your sansevieria to direct sunlight, make sure to do it in the morning.
Temperature: Keep Sansevieria Fernwood at room temperature or between 70-90°F (21-32°C). Sansevierias thrive under wide range of temperatures but, the ones below 50°F (10°C) can be fatal to them.
Water: Watering Sansevieria Fernwood should be done when soil feels dry. Soil will need approximately 2-3 weeks to dry out during active growing season(spring and summer), and 4-6 weeks or even more during winter. Of course, this won’t be accurate for every soil, so as mentioned before, its best to water once the soil lose all of its moisture.
Soil: Sansevierias don’t like to sit in water, so make sure to plant them in well-draining soil. If your snake plant sits in soil full of excess water, it will likely experience root rot. Snake plants thrive in succulent or cactus potting mix combined with pumice.
Fertilizer: Fertilize your Sansevieria Fernwood every 4-6 weeks during active growing season only. Use succulent fertilizer and dilute it with water before applying it on your snake plant.
Sansevieria Fernwood needs to be repotted in order to continue to grow. Once you notice that she has outgrown her current container, make sure to remove her from it. Examine her roots and, if they are healthy, plant her in a bigger pot. Help her recover from stress through light watering.
Sansevieria Fernwood can benefit from pruning if she has diseased leaves. By cutting them, you’ll prevent the spread of disease and keep her healthy. You can also trim healthy leaves if you want to keep her under desired size.
You can use the leaves you cut for propagation. Cut the leaf into sections(2-3 inches long each) and let every section dry for 1-2 days, before planting them in well-draining soil. Sansevierias can also be propagated through division. Separate rhizomes(underground stems) of your sansevieria into sections, making sure every section has leaves and healthy roots. Plant each section in well-draining soil.
Commonly asked questions about Sansevieria Fernwood
A thread from u/Urmys0n: “I need some advice on my Snake Plant. It has this leave that’s shriveling up rather badly, and I’m not sure what it could be. Also, some of my leaves are getting dry tips at the end of them, and I’m guessing that’s due to underwatering. I usually water my fernwood once a week( every 7 days on Wednesday), but If that’s not enough, how often should I water it? Twice a week? Any help is greatly appreciated!”
Answer: Watering once a week is too much! Only water when the soil gets dry. Make sure to fix your watering schedule. About the leaves – let them be. After some time of proper watering and care, they will fall out themselves.
