Sansevieria do best in moderate to bright indirect light but will adapt to low light conditions. It can receive bright direct sunlight but we recommend keeping it to a minimum if possible when growing indoors.
We recommend allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. While watering the Silver Flame, allow the water to drain out the drainage hole completely. If it sits in water it will cause root rot. It's better to allow this plant to get dry than to allow it to stay too wet.
This is an extremely low maintenance plant. Less is more. We recommend fertilizing every two to three months, spring through fall, with a diluted fertilizer. This plant does not require a lot of supplemental feeding. It is easily propagated by dividing the clumps and repotting. It can also be propagated by leaf cuttings. This plant will show you when it is ready to be repotted by outgrowing its pot with pups appearing to burst out.
