Some says that the name Sanseveria is a tribute of the 18th century Prince of Sansevero; others say that its discoverer called it Sanseverina in honour of the Count Sanseverino from Chiaromonte and that, after sending it to the Swedish naturalist, the latter misunderstood the name and called it Sansevieria. Regardless of these uncertainties, one thing is for sure: the ornamental value of this plant, characterized by essential and modern lines and symmetrically counterpoised leaves which, starting from the central rib, form a green fan mottled in yellow. Motum Kenia needs much moisture to be able to grow luxuriant, especially in spring and summer, which in its natural habit correspond to the rainy season. On the contrary, the plant needs a dry environment in autumn and winter. Sansevieria is easy to take care of and loves warm climates and average temperatures between 15°C and 28°C. It prefers to be exposed in a well-lit corner of the house and is at ease under the direct sun. It is recommended to periodically clean the plant to eliminate parasites, making sure to treat it with delicacy and not to break the leaves.
