Low The key to watering this plant correctly is not doing so too often: they can go for a long time without any water and watering too little is always better than too much. Constantly wet or soggy soil will quickly prove fatal!
Drainage is crucial to keeping any succulent happy and this is no different for Sansevierias. Normal potting soil retains too much water and is not suitable unless mixed with sand and/or perlite to improve drainage. You can also buy a pre-mixed succulent soil that contains a mixture that works well for Sansevieria.
Medium A single leaf is about 1 inch (3 cm) thick and grows to a height between 3-7 feet (1-2 meters)
