Sansevieria Francisii Care

Sunlight: 6-8 hours of bright, indirect sunlight will make your Sansevieria Francisii show its beauty. It will thrive under direct sunlight too, but keep in mind that too much of direct sun can cause yellow and burnt leaves.

Temperature: Room temperatures is perfect for snake plants. Keep them in a place with temperature between 18 to 24C° (65 to 75F°). It’s important to protect Sansevieria Francisii from freezing temperatures – they can affect the plant’s health in many ways.

Water: During active growing season(spring and summer), water your Sansevieria Francisii every 2-3 weeks. You can adjust your watering frequency depending on how much time soil needs to get dry. After 2-3 weeks if the soil is still moist, wait for it to dry out before watering. Soil will need more time to lose its moisture during winter.

Soil: As always, plant your snake plants in well-draining soil. By doing this you’ll prevent root rot and keep your plant healthy. Succulent or cactus potting mix combined with pumice will make your plant happy.

Fertilizer: Diluted fertilizer designed for succulents is perfect for Sansevieria Francisii. Use it every 4-6 weeks during active growing season only. Water it before applying fertilizer.

Growth

Sansevieria Francisii might be a low-growing snake plant, but it still needs to be repotted once it outgrows its container. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Remove Sansevieria Francisii from container
  • Inspect the roots – cut damaged or dead ones
  • Fill new, bigger pot(1-2 inches bigger) with well-draining soil
  • Place it in the middle of the new pot

Let your sansevieria recover from stress – water it lightly the first couple of days after repotting.

If Sansevieria Francisii’s leaves get yellow or diseased, make sure to cut them in order to stop the spread of disease. You can also prune healthy leaves for propagation.

As mentioned, you can use pruned leaves to propagate your Sansevieria Francisii. Let a leaf dry for 1-2 days before planting it in well-draining soil. You can also propagate sansevierias by division – if your snake plant has offsets, separate them from soil and let them dry for day or two before planting them in well-draining soil. They need light amounts of water until their roots develop.
