The Sansevieria is a genus of flowering plants. They are local to Africa, notably Nigeria, Congo, and Madagascar, and southern Asia. Currently, they’re mainly imported from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Thailand, and China. They’re known for adapting or surviving dry and arid regions, with their thick leaves for storing water and thick leaf cuticles for reducing moisture loss.

Avoid putting them in direct sunlight as this might scorch their leaves. The suggested watering schedule is once a week or when needed.

When propagating this Snake Plant for sale in Manila, you can choose your medium between soil or water. First off, you can cut a few blades from your plant and cut them into smaller parts that are at least 4 to 5 inches long. Place your cuttings then into your desired medium or even dip them in rooting hormone if you’d like. Remember to take note of the bottom side of your cutting because this is the side you’re going to plant into your medium and it will be where roots will develop. Place your propagated plant in a bright shaded area, and if you chose water propagation, don’t forget to change the water every week or when needed. Rooting should take place in about 4 to 6 weeks.
