Sansevieria Boncellensis is a striking succulent plant native to Kenya and Tanzania. It belongs to the genus Sansevieria, which is renowned for its resilience and air-purifying qualities. Sansevieria Boncellensis is characterised by its upright, cylindrical leaves that grow in a rosette formation. The leaves are a rich green colour with light green horizontal banding, giving them an elegant and architectural appearance.



Thrives in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight for extended periods, as this can cause sunburn on the leaves.


Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Sansevierias are drought-tolerant plants and are susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Water sparingly, approximately every 2-3 weeks, depending on the humidity and temperature of your environment.


Use a well-draining potting mix specifically formulated for succulents or cacti. A mixture of potting soil, sand, and perlite works well to ensure good drainage.


Sansevieria Boncellensis prefers temperatures between 15°C to 29°C. It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from frost.


Thrives in average room humidity but can tolerate low humidity levels. It's not particularly sensitive to humidity variations, making it suitable for various indoor environments.


Feed the plant sparingly with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilising, as this can lead to fertiliser burn and damage the plant.

Pests and Diseases

Sansevieria Boncellensis is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, it's essential to inspect the plant regularly for signs of pests such as mealybugs or spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.


Propagate Sansevieria Boncellensis through division or leaf cuttings. Division is the most common method and involves separating the plant into smaller sections, each with its own roots. Leaf cuttings can also be propagated by placing cut leaves in a well-draining soil mix until they develop roots.
