Today I am sure a quick post about this neat little snake plant called the Sansevieria Golden Hahnii. I picked this up at Walmart back in the summer garden center. This is the Sansevieria Gold Hahnii Bird’s Nest and I had to Google to find out what it was! After a little research, this plant will be living in my sunroom. Here are some fun facts about this plant.
About the Sansevierias
A member of the Asparagaceae family (snake plant) this plant does best indoors in my hardiness zone. It is a good thing I found a short description of the Sansevieria Golden Hahnii container. The tag reads “Snake Plant Sansevieria”. This dwarf cultivar of the familiar houseplant Sansevieria Trifasciata. I have grown many of these in the past few years indoors. The plant USDA hardiness zones are 10b- 11 b and can endure 35*F to 50*F temperatures in the winter months. I might have to try this out in my dome garden since it stays fairly small compared to other Sansevierias.
How To Grow and Care
The Sansevieria Golden Hahnii do best in moderately bright or filtered light. A great spot to grow this plant is in a north-facing window or in front of a bright sunny window that has a shade curtain. The plant can take low light but with bright light, you will see its amazing colors pop. When watering the plant it is best to deeply water it but only after you have let the plant completely dry out. Water sparingly throughout the winter. Treat this plant like any other succulent plant that stores water in its leaves. The roots of the plant will rot with excessively wet soil.
I hope I didn’t just kill this plant by writing extensively about it on my blog today. (giggle) In case you didn’t realize, I just had to share what a neat plant this was and how it was useful to do a little searching before planting. I would have for sure killed it out on the deck in full sun. I’d love to hear about your Sansevierias. Have you ever grown one indoors? Be sure to comment on my post and let me know any tips you can suggest.
Happy Indoor Gardening,
