My sanseveria appears to love my north facing windowsill. It now has three offshoots sprouting at the edge of the pot. Should I leave them or dig them out? I’ve never been able to keep one of these before so I know little about them. Does it mean the mother plant need repotting? If so what compost should I use?



if you want to repot the pups then yes you can, using a gritty compost. I tend to leave them until the pot is fully congested then repot.

I didn’t realise they were called pups. Very strange. Try telling people you’re growing pups!

How do I say thanks?
