Sansevieria francisii

19.99 $

Sansevieria francisii is an attractive, robust succulent in the Dracaenaceae family. Recognizable by its turret-like growth, with thick, pointed leaves that stack tightly on top of each other, this species is ideal for plant collectors looking for a less common variety of sansevieria.

Origin: Native to Kenya, Sansevieria francisii grows naturally in arid environments, making it extremely drought tolerant and adapted to dry indoor climates.

Growth: This sansevaria has a unique vertical growth habit, with leaves reaching up to 60 cm in length. The leaves are dark green with lighter stripes and sometimes a reddish or brownish edge.

Flowers: Like other Sansevieria species, S. francisii can produce flowers, although this is rare in indoor cultivation. Flowers are usually white or cream and appear on a vertical flower spike that emerges from the center of the plant.

Light: Sansevieria francisii adapts well to a range of lighting conditions, from low to moderate light to bright indirect light. However, too little light can slow growth and fade leaf color.

Watering: This plant requires minimal watering. Allow the substrate to dry out completely between waterings, and water even less frequently over winter. Sansevieria francisii is very sensitive to excess water, which can cause root rot.

Substrate: Use a well-draining mix typical of succulents. A mixture containing pumice and perlite is ideal to ensure adequate drainage and prevent water stagnation.

Toxicity: Sansevieria francisii is toxic to pets and humans if ingested, due to the saponin it contains, which can cause nausea, vomiting and mouth irritation.

Sansevieria francisii is an excellent option for those looking to add a touch of exoticism and structure to their houseplant collection, thanks to its unique shape and ease of care. It is particularly suited to offices or homes where maintenance requirements are minimal but a plant presence is still desirable.
