Sansevieria 'Mikado', also known as Sansevieria kirkii 'Mikado' or cylindrical snake plant 'Mikado', is a cultivar of Sansevieria kirkii. It's named for its unique appearance, with long, cylindrical, spear-like leaves that grow in a compact, upright fashion, resembling a bundle of spears.

Light

Sansevieria 'Mikado' thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light conditions. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods, as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering

Allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as overwatering can lead to root rot. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry during the growing season (spring and summer), and reduce watering in the dormant season (fall and winter).

Soil

Plant your Sansevieria 'Mikado' in well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging. A cactus or succulent mix with added perlite or sand works well.

Temperature

This plant prefers temperatures between 15°C to 29°C. Protect it from cold drafts and extreme temperatures.

Humidity

Sansevieria 'Mikado' is adaptable to different humidity levels, but it generally prefers average room humidity.

Fertilisation

Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Avoid fertilising during the dormant period.

Propagation

Propagate by dividing the rhizomes or by leaf cuttings. Allow cuttings to callus for a day or two before planting them in moist soil.

Pests and Diseases

Sansevieria 'Mikado' is relatively pest-resistant, but it can occasionally be susceptible to spider mites or mealybugs. Keep an eye out for signs of infestation, such as webbing or white cottony clusters, and treat promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
