How to Grow & Care for a Sansevieria “Hahnii”
My sister gave me this plant, said it was some type of ivy but she wasn’t sure. This plant keeps having babies (which I don’t mind) and you don’t need to put it in direct sunlight. I originally thought it was a Cast-Iron plant but it wasn’t; I also thought it was a Chinese evergreen but yet again it wasn’t. I really want to know what kind of plant it is.
Your plant is a variety of sansevieria called “hahnii”. This type of easy care sansevieria has very short leaves as compared to the usual sansevieria trifasciats that has tall leaves. You can read all my care tips and information on how to grow sansevierias in the Popular Houseplants section of the website. The picture is of a different variety, but the care is the same.
These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.
