Botanical name: Sansevieria ehrenbergii
This rare sansevieria ‘Samurai Dwarf’ is believed to have originated in Africa. It has a short stature, only growing 4-6” tall. The short, green leaves have a pronounced V-shape with a slight red tint on the leaf edges and leaf tips, and they arise on the stem in an alternating pattern. Looking down from the top, it creates a pleasing, circular form. Like all sansevierias, it grows best in full sun. Water only when the soil is dry.
Full or partial sun; a southern, eastern, or western exposure. Will grow
faster when grown under some direct sunlight.
Water thoroughly, until some water trickles from the bottom of the pot,
and then allow to dry down before watering well again. Will rot if grown
too wet. It is important to allow plants to dry out between waterings.
These plants requires low maintenance. Fertilize occasionally. Low fertilizer requirement; use a balanced low-level fertilizer twice each growing season.
Samurai Dwarf is toxic to pets.
