We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water. Check to see if the plant should be watered at that time of the year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what they will look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Sansevieria suffruticosa

Sansevieria suffruticosa 'Frosty Spears' - A very distinctive and slow growing plant that with time forms a clump of open rosettes of upwardly arching cylindrica leaves. The younger leaves have a concave inner side that runs the length and are shorter and more arching. More mature leaves are to 18 inches long and completely cylindrical and smooth. These leaves emerge a silvery white color and darken to a pale blue green color and are horizontally banded in blue green with very narrow pinstripe longitudinal lines as well. Aerial stolons are produced which allows the clump to expand. Grow in very bright light to maintain strong pale coloration. Sansevieria suffruticosa group is noted for its relative cold tolerance and this plant may be able to be used outdoors in Southern California in locations such as under an eave that is sheltered from winter rainfall and frost. Sansevieria suffruticosa is from Kenya but there is considerable confusion regarding this plant and its origin as there apparently were multiple clones that used this name. One named cone has the cultivar name 'Blue Clone' and is thought to have thinner and smaller leaves. Another thought is that this plant is actually a cultivar of the Somalian species Sansevieria phillipsiae. Information from San Marcos growers.
