Sansevieria are a herbaceous, evergreen, mildly toxic flowering plant that is native to Africa and Asia. people mostly use it as an ornamental plant. They thrive well in small pots. This is because in a small space, its rhizomes are crowded and this enables it to grow faster. It's well known for its capacity to purify the air by converting harmful substances into harmless ones.

If growing indoors, you’ll need a strong pot – a clay pot, for example. This ensures that the roots don’t break it as they grow. It should be wide but not tall, due to the plant’s shallow rooting system and should be perforated for proper drainage. The soil should also be well drained to avoid waterlogging since too much water can rot the plant.

The Bantel’s Sensation variety is a rare variety of Sansevieria and is sometimes referred to as the White Sansevieria. Although developed in a nursery, its parent plant is native to the tropical regions of western Africa. The man who developed the White Sansevieria was Gustav Bantel. Thus, the plant got its name Sansevieria Bantel’s Sensation.  

Bantel’s Sensation is an easy-going house plant or outdoor plant. This is due to its capability of tolerating a range of environmental and cultural conditions. 

To distinguish this plant from others is simple. White Sansevieria plants stand out due to the distinctive leaf patterns. The upright leaves are a dark green, adorned with white vertical stripes.

Dissimilar to others in its genus, the White Sansevieria needs a bit more light - an ideal spot would be one that receives a lot of bright indirect light with minimal direct light. However, that is the only unlike care requirement. Watering should still be minimal and infrequent. The soil still needs to be free-draining. Temperatures on the warmer side are preferred but no extra effort is required for humidity. Do not mist this plant! Water droplets on its leaves will encourage rot. Fertilizing isn’t vital. However, it can be done twice a year at most. This should only be done during the plant’s growing season. 

Your plant will come in a 100mm pot with a single growth point.
