Q.

Normal plant culture.

Zone St. Louis Mo. 63135 | Anonymous added on September 3, 2017 | Answered

I have the sansavieria twist plant,sitting on my table ,under a lamp with other small plants. I turned off the lights for the night,and found that the yellow edges of the plant were glowing in the dark. This surely is not normal,but I let the plant stay in its place for weeks. When I finally decided to touch the glowing leaves, they were dry and sandy feeling. Can this plant live like this? karenwillwin777@yahoo

Very interesting! Sansaveria trifasciata. What you have is completely normal, although very cool. Keep the soil moist, not wet, or dry. In fact, take tip cuttings and put them in a pot of soil, and watch them take root to multiply what you have! Contact me with any more questions here or on my email 6.schuster@gmail.com. Thank You!
