Sansevieria Superba

General information

The Sansevieria Superba originally grows in West Africa. In the Netherlands these houseplants are better known as Vrouwentongen and in Belgium as Wijventongen.

The leaves are dark green with light gray-green horizontally running zigzagging stripes. The leaf size varies and can be up to 90 centimeters long by 6 centimeters wide. In optimal growing conditions even up to more than a meter in length.

The plant exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide through the Crassulacean Acid Metabolism that is found in a small number of species of plants and serves to withstand long drought and heat.

Of the Sansevieria there are no less than 66 species.

Many people think that it is a succulent plant, officially it is not.

The Sansevieria is part of the Asparagus family.

The Sanseveria should be repainted to a larger pot size every year.

Make sure that the next pot size is at least 20% larger than the previous one.

The Sansevieria will make your living room shine!
