Previously, we discussed the meaning of snake plant flowers,…

…now let’s discuss one of the unique varieties of snake plants, Sansevieria Cleopatra.

However, if you want to know the meaning of the flowers of this plant,…

…we suggest reading the previous article first.

Go to: The Amazing Snake Plant Flower Meaning You Must Know.

Sansevieria cleopatra is a lovely, slow-growing hybrid…

… with intricate leaf patterns that grow in a perfect rosette.

Sansevieria cleopatra is a flowering plant native to Africa, Madagascar…

… and southern Asia that is popular as a houseplant in cooler climates.

Warmth and bright light are ideal for them, but they will also tolerate shade…

They must be grown in well-draining compost and not be over-watered, or they will rot…


How To Plant Sansevieria Cleopatra?

Select a container with a drainage hole in the bottom…

Snake plants thrive in terra cotta pots…

… which allows the soil to dry out more quickly than plastic pots.

Use a potting mix that drains well…

It’s best to use a potting mix designed for “cacti and succulents,”…

… as it’ll be less likely to become waterlogged.

Don’t bury snake plants too deeply when repotting them…

The plant should be planted at the same depth as it was in its previous container…


Choosing a Location for Sansevieria Cleopatra

Sansevieria cleopatra prefer bright, indirect light…

… but they can tolerate some direct sunlight as well.

They do, however, grow well in shady corners…

… and other low-light areas of the house (albeit more slowly).

Maintain a warm environment for the plant, with temperatures above 50°F (10°C)…

In the winter, make sure the windows aren’t drafty…


Sansevieria Cleopatra Care

Sansevieria cleopatra are ideal for new gardeners because it is nearly impossible to kill.

It’s a great container plant that looks great in a grouping…

… and can be used on the floor or in tabletop displays.

Drought resistance is also a feature of these plants…

Two low-growing varieties exist, but they are rarely found in garden centers…

Avoid overwatering your snake plant, as this can cause it to rot…

Before watering again, make sure the soil is completely dry…

During the winter, they can even go two months without watering…

Water every three to four weeks during the summer…

Snake plants do best in warm weather and struggle in extremely cold weather…


Light

Sansevieria cleopatra prefer indirect but consistent light…

… with some direct sunlight, despite their forgiving nature.

They can adapt to full sun and will also survive in low-light conditions…

Most snake plants thrive in bright, indirect light as a general rule…

Sansevieria cleopatra are considered low-light variants…

… which is one of the factors that is misunderstood.

That’s how they’re usually offered for sale…

Your Sansevieria cleopatra will tell you if it isn’t getting enough sunlight…

… by having droopy and sad-looking leaves.

While it’s important not to move your snake plant…

… from a dark corner to a bright light environment too quickly…

… you can train it to thrive next to a window that gets plenty of light.

To do so, gradually bring it closer to your light source…

… while maintaining a high humidity level.

Just keep an eye out for “sunburn” as it gets closer to your window…

A thinning leaf that is beginning to blacken or brown is one sign of plant sunburn…

It will appear flimsy, and the tips will become crispy. Snake plants require regular watering…

Snake plants are succulents, which means they store water in their leaves…

… stems, and roots and can survive in arid conditions.

You’ll notice these giant root structures that are really thick if you pull snake plants out…

Those root structures store a lot of water, and the meaty, fleshy leaves also have a lot of water…

As a result, Sansevieria cleoptra is one type of plant that can go longer between waterings…

When it comes to snake plants, one of the tricks is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering…


Soil

Because Sansevieria cleopatra is a slow grower, they don’t require much fertilizer…

… but you should replace their soil every eight to twelve months to avoid root rot.

Check to see if your snake plant’s roots are pressed…

… all the way against the pot as you add more soil.

If they are…

… you’ll need to move it to a new pot with a diameter of 1 to 2 inches wider…

You shouldn’t have to do it more than once every two to three years…

Snake plants, once again, are slow-growing…

If your Sansevieria cleopatra’s new leaves wilt before they have a chance to mature…

… or if older growth suddenly starts to look unhealthy and die…

… despite the fact that your care routine hasn’t changed, your snake plant may need a new home.


Water

Between waterings, allow the soil to dry out…

Reduce watering to once a month during the winter…

… or whenever the soil feels dry to the touch.

Under-watering is preferable to over-watering, as too much water can kill Sansevieria cleopatra…


Temperature and Humidity

Sansevieria cleopatra thrives in warm environments and will suffer…

… if temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the plant in an area where it won’t be exposed to drafts…

It’s best if the temperature is between 70 and 90 degrees…


Fertilizer

During the growing season, feed with a mild cactus fertilizer…

… or a balanced liquid slow-release (10-10-10 fertilizer) diluted to half strength.

In the winter, don’t fertilize…


More On Snake Plant


Is Snake Plant Toxic?

People, dogs, and cats are moderately poisoned by the snake plant…

Humans who consume the plant may experience short-term symptoms…

… such as mouth pain, salivation, and nausea.

It can cause a dermatological reaction in rare cases, but it is only toxic if ingested…

Ingestion can cause excessive salivation, pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea in cats and dogs…

But the plants are also poisonous if ingested. Large doses can cause nausea and vomiting, and the poison found in the plant has a numbing effect that can cause the tongue and throat to swell. The plants are more toxic to dogs and cats, which can suffer from nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Potting and Repotting

Strong roots can easily crack and break weak pots…

… so choose a sturdy material when potting.

Sansevierias are slow growers who rarely require repotting…

… but if given enough sunlight, they can grow quickly and require repotting or dividing once a year.

In the spring, you can repot these plants.

Pests/Diseases

Overwatering causes root rot, which is the most common problem…

Remove any dying leaves and allow the plant to dry out more than usual if this happens…

… and repot in fresh soil if the plant continues to die.
