Sanseveria / Sansevieria


Het blijkt dat Sanseveria’s oorspronkelijk uit Afrika komen, voor meer informatie zie hier: http://www.123kamerplanten.com/verzorging-tips/kamerplanten-encyclopedie/sanseveria/
Sanseveria’s zijn er in alle soorten en kleuren en ze zijn gemakkelijk in onderhoud. Ze zijn al jarenlang bekende kamerplanten, tegenwoordig zie je ze weer terugkeren in vintage interieurs ;).

It seems that Sansevieria's are originally from Africa, for more information see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sansevieria
Sansevieria come in all sort of sizes and colors and they are easy to maintain. Since years they are well known as houseplants, nowadays you often see them returning in vintage interiors ;).


Voor de DHN-show in april had ik een Sanseveria gemaakt, die meteen verkocht werd. Daarna werd er nog eens om gevraagd, dus heb ik er weer een paar én in verschillende kleurnuances gemaakt voor de volgende show in oktober.

For the last DHN-show in April I had made a Sansevieria and it was sold right away. After it was sold, some visitors asked if I had more of these plants, so I made a few more and in different color nuances for the coming DHN-show in October.




 Ik heb de terracotta potjes gekocht bij Fennicole Miniatures, http://www.fennicole-miniatures.nl/
Ze zijn met pastelkrijt bewerkt, daardoor kun je ze zelf nog in de gewenste kleur beschilderen.

I bought these terracotta pots from Fennicole Miniatures, http://www.fennicole-miniatures.nl/  
They are painted with soft pastels, this way you can still paint them in the color of your liking.


Sorry voor de slechte kleurkwaliteit van de foto’s, we hebben geen goed daglicht op het moment.
Sorry, for the bad quality of colors on the pictures, here we have bad daylight at the moment.

(the old ramshackle watering can watering can is made by me, it is made of Fimo clay)

Geef ze vooral niet te veel water, want daar hebben ze een hekel aan. Ze zijn uitermate geschikt voor mensen, die geen groene vingers hebben met échte kamerplanten, zoals ik dus LOL ;)!!
 Warm welkom aan mijn nieuwe volger, ik dank jullie voor de leuke reacties.
Een heel fijn weekend gewenst allemaal :D!


Don't give them too much water, because they dislike it. These plants are perfectly suitable for people, who do not have green fingers with REAL house plants, like me LOL ;)!!
A warm welcome to my new follower, thank you all for your nice comments.
Wishing you all a nice weekend :D!

Hallo Ilona,
Hoe prachtig! Ik hou van de planten. De kleuren zijn zo goed gedaan. Ook geweldig werk op de oude blik. Je moet echt een groene duim voor miniaturen.
Grote knuffel

These are fabulous - so realistic. I love the tiny yellow tip on one of the leaves which is what all my houseplants have!! Great work and I am sure they will all be snapped up immediately. Have a great weekend,

Beautiful and perfect plants. So realistic.

The Old Maid zei

I've already written the plants are fantastic, not sure if I had seen this watering can before but I just love it! It is hard to believe it is made of fimo... :)
Hugs

Drora's minimundo zei

As always these wonderful plants (we call them mother-in-law tongues) are
exquisite. I love the withered tips in the first plant. It looks so real!
I love the fimo watering can. Thought it was metal before I read you note.
No wonder your plants are a hit at the shows. Good luck.
Hugs, Drora

Daydreamer zei

Dear Ilona, your Sanseveria are just perfect! They are so real looking that I would not know they are minis! I am always so impressed at the variety of the minis you make... and they are always to the highest standards! I am sure they will be a big hit at the Fair!

They look Very Realistic Ilona and of course that is due to your gift for catching the essence of the plant as well as your eye for those extra little details- Beautifully done! :D

BiWuBär zei

No surprise these stunning miniature sanseverias sold so fast - of course they look awesome but on top... like the real ones they are so easy-going in a dollhouse because they fit almost everywhere whether it's a modern or an ancient project... and even witches wouldn't say no to a "Mother-in-Law-Tongue"... ;O)

Veilchen zei

Hallo Ilona,
die Sansevieria ist definitiv die Pflanze für den ungeübten Zimmergärtner. Ihre Mini-Exemplare sind wieder unheimlich realistisch geworden. Das die Gießkanne aus Fimo ist, hätte ich nicht vermutet.
Super schön das letzte Foto.
Liebe Grüße Veilchen

Piikko zei

Sansevieria!? We also know this plant as tongue of mother in law. :D
I like Sansevierias very much but I don't own any at the moment.
Your little ones looks beautiful! No wonder why you was asked to make more.
-I keep on enjoying summer. Though the last two weeks it have been very cold.
Now we are waiting for warmer days and rain. Today I planted some geraniums. :)
Summer greetings, piikko

Bonjour Ilona, those plants are wonderful. I find every thing you make is really gorgeous on your blog, flowers and plants, artishokes, wooden sppons, and the wheelbarrow ! Perfect and clever! Cheers:)
