Whale Fin Snake Plants
Sansevieria Masoniana or Whale Fin Snake Plant, is probably one of the strangest and most eye-catching plants around. Native to the Democratic Republic of the Congo it is part of the wider Asparagaceae family – with a single blade, it’s one of the most recognizable in the family. In the wild, it can grow up to 4m in height, eventually forming a stalk with clusters of white flowers.
Sansevierias are ideal plants to brighten up your bedroom and help you sleep better by breathing cleaner air all night long. Although it’s labeled as a low-light plant, it’s recommended to place it in a bright area to keep it in the best shape.
As with many other Sansevieria varieties this plant if easy-to-grow as an indoor plant or outdoor in near frost free climates in a pot so long as soil drains adequately and is kept relatively dry through the winter months – a great plant under a protected eave.
Plant it in part sun or bright to deep shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate regularly or occasionally in the warmer months.
Sansevieria is in the list of NASA’s air purifying plants. Research has shown that the broad leaves of Snake Plants soak up toxins and carbon dioxide and produce oxygen to help purify the air in the room. It also purifies and cleans indoor air by removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene. Since they produce oxygen mainly at night, Sansevierias make excellent bedroom companions.
Dos and Don’ts after receiving the plant
- Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
- Keep the plant in indirect sunlight for 3 to 7 days.
- Always check the soil moisture and keep the plant hydrated all time. Do not over water it.
