    • Fertilizer: Use a balanced cactus fertilizer 2-3 times a year.

    The Best Unboxing Practices:

    Properly caring for your newly unboxed Sansevieria Moonshine for the first week of its new life is crucial to the extended wellness of your plant. Follow these practices to get the best results:
      • Watering: Exotic Forest ships freshly watered plants. Do not water your Sansevieria until it exhibits the proper signs.
      • Repotting: Do not immediately repot your plant, which would likely result in shock and leaf-loss. Allow it to acclimate to its new environment for at least one week. 
      • Lighting: Place your Sansevieria in filtered, low light for a few days to acclimate. Relocate your Sansevieria Moonshine to your desired location that fits its care needs afterward. Do not ever place a freshly un-boxed plant in direct sun.

        FAQ about How to Care for Your Sansevieria Moonshine:

          • What’s the Sansevieria Moonshine’s scientific name? The scientific name for your plant is: Sansevieria trifasciata ‘Moonshine’.
          • What’s the average height of the Sansevieria Moonshine? If cared for properly, it can reach heights of up to two feet!
          • How do you take care of the Sansevieria Moonshine? If you already own a Snake Plant or two, you’re a shoo-in for taking care of the Sansevieria Moonshine because they have the same care requirements. Place your Sansevieria in a brightly lit location; placing the Moonshine in a low-light area will result in darker, green leaves. Water your plant when the soil has completely dried!
