Sansevieria, or pike tail, can be found in almost any office and even at home. This indoor flower is amazingly unpretentious and resistant even to the most severe living conditions.

Step 1

The pike host grows up to two meters in height even in the smallest pot, its root system develops actively, but does not require "freedom". He does not like a flower and watering, half a glass of water once or twice a month will be enough for your plant.

Step 2

You need to transplant a flower only in two cases: if you want sansevieria to give new leaves or form a young bush for their further seeding. Or because you flooded the plant. With an excess of moisture, the pike tail begins to hurt, so you need to gently knock it on the floor with a pot so that the earth moves away from the walls of the vessel, and pull the plant along with a lump of earth behind dense sheets. Without shaking off the soil from the roots, place the plant on a sheet of thick paper covered with an absorbent cloth. Lift the ends of the fabric and tie around the roots. So you can easily dry the roots within a day or two. Then just return the pike tail to the old pot and add dry earth if necessary.

Step 3

Similarly, the plant is transplanted into a larger pot. By the way, when choosing pots, give preference to elongated horizontal ones; in such pots, the powerful rhizome of sansevieria will develop freely without creating loops. In addition, the horse system of the plant is located quite close to the surface, and therefore it simply does not need a high vertical pot.

Step 4

Unlike many plants, it is recommended to water abundantly before transplanting. It is better to transplant the pike tail "on dry". Just take out the plant with a clod of earth and move it to the prepared pot.

Step 5

Sansevieria will not require any special soil mixtures either. She needs good drainage, so make drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, fill in expanded clay or large pebbles by a quarter. Pour a mixture of sandstone, ground bark and sod on top. Such soil is more than suitable for an unpretentious pike tail.

Step 6

The transplanted plant does not need to be watered, but sprayed from a spray bottle. The next day after the manipulations, water can be poured into the pallet.
