Habits That Enhance The Healthiness Of Your Sansevieria Gracilis

Get Creative With Presentation
Find new and exciting ways to interact with your houseplants. Make a plant hanging out of macrame.

Hanging a kokedama string garden – the Japanese technique of growing plants in a moss-covered ball of soil tied in string or fishing line – may bring some lushness to your interiors. You may even make an up-cycled planter out of one of your unused candle containers..
Is It Time To Repot?
At some time, most plants will need to be repotted. Check to check if your plant’s roots are growing through the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot to see if it needs a new home. If it’s a big plant, turn it on its side and tap the rim with a knife before cutting it open. Before removing the plant, water it and then move it to a container that is about 2 inches larger than the previous one.
One of the simplest methods to clone your favorite houseplants is to propagate houseplants like Sansevieria. Simply cut the vine just below the node (where the leaf connects the rhizome) and lay several stems in water or around the rim of a 3-inch pot, leaving two to three leafs at the top. Allow the stems to sit in a warm part of the house for a few days to allow roots to take place. After three months, each plant should be moved to a 3- or 4-inch container.
A little love everyday for your sansevieria gracilis won’t hurt you at all right? So why not?
