Light Requirements

Your Sansevieria Superba will grow best with consistent, bright sunny light. Many people put their Sansevieria Superba in a window. This plant can tolerate less sunny areas and can live in artificial light.

Water Requirements

Water when the soil becomes dry, then thoroughly drench until the water drains into the saucer. Empty the saucer if the water level is high so as not to drown the roots. The worst thing you can do to your Snake Plant is to overwater it. 

Humidity Preference

Your Snake plant will appreciate you misting its leaves to help to keep the pests (damaging insects) from making themselves at home on the leaves. Snake plants can tolerate low humidity levels well.

Optimum Temperature

The Sansevieria Superba enjoys average room temperatures of 50-85 degrees. Avoid temperatures below 50 degrees, sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts.

Plant Food

For best results, feed your plant every month during the spring and summer with diluted liquid fertilizer. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.

Additional Care

Sansevieria Superba requires little additional care and typically does not require pruning except to remove old leaves as they fade.


Sansevieria Superba is considered toxic. Ingestion may cause a stomach upset.
