Full description and specifications
Sansevieria grandis, also known as Dracena grandis after the reclassification of the genus Sansevieria in the genus Dracena, is a perennial, succulent plant that is part of the Asparagaceae family. Originally from East Africa, especially from Kenya and Somalia, this species is appreciated for its decorative, thick, fleshy leaves, which can reach impressive lengths.

Sansevieria grandis has long, green leaves with lighter or darker vertical stripes, which can vary in shades of green and grey-green. The leaves are erect, wide and flattened, with slightly wavy edges and a waxy texture. The plant can grow up to heights of 90-120 cm, developing slowly and forming compact groups of leaves.

Care

  • Light : Prefers bright places, but also adapts to semi-shade. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so it is recommended to be placed near a window with eastern or western exposure.

  • Watering : Sansevieria grandis requires little water, being a succulent plant. The soil must dry completely between waterings. In warm periods, watering is done once every 1-2 weeks, and in winter, watering is significantly reduced, once a month being enough.

  • Temperature : It develops well at temperatures between 18°C ​​and 27°C. Avoid exposure to temperatures below 10°C, as it can be harmful.

  • Humidity : It does not require high humidity. Normal humidity conditions in the house are sufficient for healthy growth.

  • Soil : Prefers a well-drained, porous soil. A cactus or succulent mix is ​​ideal.

  • Fertilization : Fertilization is not necessary frequently. Apply a diluted fertilizer for succulents once a month during the period of active growth (spring-summer).

  • Transplanting : It is done when the roots become too crowded in the pot. It is recommended to be carried out at the beginning of spring.

  • Common problems : Overwatering is the most common problem, which can lead to root rot.
