Plant lovers, those who have a green thumb but also those who don’t, have had to deal with sansevieria at least once in their lives . It is a purifying and easy-to-care for houseplant, characterized by long and straight leaves, like swords, which can be green or edged with yellow.

Despite being extremely easy to keep, there are tricks to grow sansevieria quickly . In fact, it takes very little to get the best results from this plant.

The first factor to consider is the fertilizer. It should be considered as a succulent plant and as such it is necessary to use an ad hoc fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The fertilizer should be given twice a month in spring and summer, while fertilization should be suspended in autumn and winter. Coffee grounds are excellent natural fertilizers to be administered to sansevieria.

Sansevieria is a plant that loves to stay in apartments but also loves direct sunlight in summer, but avoids the hottest hours of the day.

Repotting is also essential to make sansevieria grow properly. It is necessary every two years and place the sansevieria in a larger pot. The best time to do this is March.

It is important to clean the leaves of our sansevieria, so that it is always beautiful and luxuriant. This operation mainly serves to promote photosynthesis.
