Sansevieria 'Boncel' Starfish
Sansevieria ‘Boncel’, more commonly know as Starfish Plants, are rare but worth searching for. They are a more compact hybrid of Sansevieria cylindrica, or snake plant. The plant has fan-shaped light green foliage with dark green concentric circles from the top to the bottom of the leaf. Young “pups” spring from the base of the plant and can be easily transplanted to propagate new plants.
Growing and caring for starfish sansevieria is just like caring for the common snake plant. Also easy to care for, it prefers bright light but will tolerate lower levels. Plant starfish in regular succulent potting mix. Generally a houseplant, starfish sansevieria is hardy to USDA zones 10b-11. Water starfish sansevieria only when it is completely dry. As a succulent, it collects water in its leaves so overwatering may cause the plant to rot.
