How do I take cuttings from my Sanseveria?

In late August remove the plant from its pot, and cut off the rooted offsets with a sharp knife.

Trim the off-set and plant up individually into 70mm (3”) pots of potting compost.

Place the pots in a relatively warm place to root.

The parent plant can then be repotted at this time into new compost.


I have a mother-in- law's tongue (Sanseveria) which is pot bound, when is the best time to repot it?

Sanseveria plants should be divided and repotted in Mid August to end of September.
