Sansevieria, or a pike tail, can be found in almost any office and even at home.
This room flower is stunningly unpretentious and resistant to even the toughest living conditions.
The shiny host grows to a height of up to two meters evenIn the smallest pot, its root system develops actively, but does not require "freedom." Do not like the flower and watering, half a glass of water once or twice a month your plant will be enough.
To transplant a flower it is necessary only in two cases: If you want Sansevieria to give new leaves or to form a young bush for their further seating. Or because you filled the plant. With an excess of moisture, the pike tail begins to ache, so you need to gently knock it with a pot on the floor so that the earth moves away from the walls of the vessel, and pull the plant out with dense leaves together with a clod of earth. Do not shake the ground from the roots, put the plant on a sheet of thick paper, covered with a well-absorbent cloth. The ends of the fabric lift and tie around the roots. So you easily dry the roots within a day or two. Then just return the tail of the tail to the old pot and add dry land if necessary.
Similarly, the plant is transplanted into a larger pot. By the way, when choosing pots, give preference to elongated horizontal pots, in such pots the powerful rhizome of sansevierium will develop freely without creating loops. In addition, the plant's plant system is located fairly close to the surface, and therefore it simply does not need a tall vertical pot.
Unlike many plants that are in front ofIt is recommended to water the transplant abundantly. It is better to transplant the tail of the tail to the dry one. Just remove the plant with a clod of earth and move it into a prepared pot.
Some special soils of Sansevieria, tooDoes not require. She needs a good drainage, so in the bottom of the pot make drainage holes, inside a quarter pour the expanded clay or large pebbles. Above, put a mixture of sandstone, crushed bark and turf. Such a soil is more than suitable for the unpretentious pike tail.
Transplanted plant should not be watered, but sprinkled from the spray. The next day after the manipulations in the tray, you can pour water.
