Origin: Kenya

Family: Asparagaceae

Description :

Sansevieria pinguicula is arguably the most attractive sansevieria due to its chunky leaves. It is a slow growing plant, resembling a dwarf agave because of thick leaves with a pointed end, a choice species much prized by collectors for its peculiar growing habit.

Pingiculula has 5–7, thickly fleshy, uniformly blue-green leaves, arranged in a rosette and lunate (moon shaped) in cross section, 12–30 cm long, 2.8-3.5 cm thick, tipped with a single horny, very sharp spine. Channel wide, concave-angular, from base to apex, with reddish-brown horny margins edged with tough, papery white cuticle.

Height: 20-30 cm tall

Light: Sansevieria thrives in just about any light. Bright light to full sun, will also tolerate low light. It an excellent choice for low light conditions

Water: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out between watering during the growing season. In winter, water just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Over watering will cause root rot. Take care not to water the center of the rosette of leaves because they'll rot easily if kept wet.

Humidity: Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist your plant more frequently in the summer growing season- the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Temperature: Sansevieria pinguicula are easy to cultivate, but extremely slow growing and requires warm temperatures to grow.

Soil: A loose, well-drained potting mix. It can easily grow in soil-less medium also.

Fertilizer: Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.

Eliminates: Sansevieria species are believed to act as good air purifiers by removing toxins (such as formaldehyde, xylene and toluene) from the air. The plant convert CO2 to oxygen at night also.
