One of the Best Easy-Care Houseplants
Sansevieria Black Star is a compact Snake Plant that is just perfect for table and desk tops. Black Star's dark green leaves with bright yellow variegation grow to be about 8" tall tall. Starpower Series of Sansevieria with stunning colors in a compact plant. Snake plants are one of the varieties recommended by NASA's air purifying study.
Toxic to people and pets if ingested.
Great for about any room in your home. Snake plants grow best in High or Medium light conditions, but can also tolerate Low light (though they will grow best with more light).
Low water needs. They should be allowed to dry out between watering. Water these plants when the soil is dry. In summer this can be weekly or every other week, in winter water monthly or less often. As succulents, Sansevieria can survive drought, but they must have soil and pots that drain well. Sitting in water will cause them to rot.
Use a houseplant or succulent fertilizer during the growing season (spring & summer), but not in winter.
This small variety grows slowly and is perfect for smaller containers and dish gardens. They do well with being root-bound, but will eventually require division or repotting when the clump grows too large for the current container.
