4" Bird Nest Sanseveria
information: These two little gems are really easy to
grow. The plant on the left is Golden Hahnii... the variegated
form, and the plant on the right is Green Hahnii. Golden Hahnii
will require a little brighter light than the Green Hahnii... but
neither plant needs strong sunshine.
Both of the pictured plants
grow very slowly and are generally only found as small plants.
Water sparingly... allowing the surface soil to dry about 20% of
the container depth before watering. Feed bi-monthly with a
balanced liquid fertilize. Propagate by dividing
the suckers from the main plant.
