Snake Plant Blooming!
How do I get it blooming?
‘Moonshine’ Sansevieria blooming! Can you imagine that?
The sansevieria ‘Moonshine’ has been in my garden for years.
There has been a window with a similar view in the same place since the beginning of time.
My plant has been with me for over 21 years, but I’m not sure how long I’ve had it. In the last few months…
…there has been no change in the plant’s condition except for the up-potting last autumn as it broke out of the pot.
The part of the plant growing that is blooming is farthest from the sun.
One thing I can think of is that before I up-potted it, that side faced the sun and it was already in bloom.
You are right, I should turn my plant regularly to make sure all sides get the same amount of sun…
….if I had turned it more often, I might have had more than one bloom stalk.

Blossoms are closed during the daytime and open after dark.
