You will receive the plant in a nursery pot and a matching ornamental pot. Stand your Spear Sansevieria in a warm and sunny spot. The thick, fleshy leaves are very strong and this plant requires very little maintenance. Dry air (for instance above a radiator) is no problem to this plant.
This plant keeps growing, but at a leisurely pace. New leaves formed will be a natural green, so in time the colour will gradually disappear as the old leaves die off.
Water your Spear Sansevieria moderately but regularly, only once every 3 weeks is enough - the soil can remain a little on the dry side. Never leave water standing in the saucer. In the spring and summer add a small amount of plant feed to the water from time to time. Really robust houseplant - will only suffer in temps below 10 degrees Celsius and overwatering will not be tolerated.

Keeping the plant dry and slightly cooler over winter will encourage flower stems. The flowers have a delicious scent.
Succulents are very easy to keep as houseplants because they tolerate dry air very well. Their thick, fleshy leaves can hold a lot of moisture and act as a water reservoir during dry periods. Spear Sansevierias make great plants for difficult places, such as a window-sill above a radiator. Spear Sansevieria can be placed outside on the patio or decking during the summer. As they are not frost tolerant, they need to be kept indoors when there are signs of frost.
