Sansevieria Futura Superba


Native to arid regions of West Africa, Sansevieria Trifasciata 'Futura Superba' is a species of Snake Plant, or Mother-In Law's-Tongue, characterized by its clumping, compact shape and silvery-green leaves lined with yellow edges. In a study done by NASA, they are known to be incredibly effective at cleaning the surrounding air by storing carbon dioxide acquired at night for use during the day, then releasing oxygen at night when the pores open.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will do well in low light, but will grow faster with brighter light. A low light plant can pretty much survive anyplace inside your home as long as you have a window in the room. Remember, low light does not mean no light and plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 4 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.
They are super easy to take care of, incredibly hardy, and known for their air-purifying capabilities. The more light a plant gets the more water it needs, but make sure you do not overwater them and try not to get water on their leaves.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
