They require bright filtered or indirect light. When growing outdoors, plant or position potted plants in areas of partial shade or full light but never in the direct light of the hot sun.
Sansevieria can tolerate a lack of watering but will fail quickly if over watered. Water plants moderately during the growing season and sparingly during winter. When growing outdoors, protect from over-abundant winter moisture such as heavy snow and cold rain.
For potted ones, grow in two parts soil-based potting mix and one part coarse grit. Sansevieria thrives in neutral to alkaline soil therefore apply a balanced fertilizer (20-20-20) at half strength once monthly.
