Snake Plant,Sansevieria trifasciata
The Snake Plant is one of the easiest plants to care for. She will do well in just about any room. Place her next to a bright sunny window or even in a dimly lit office where she'll only receive small amounts of fluorescent light. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.
The Snake Plant will thrive in bright to moderate, indirect light but will be perfectly fine in extremely low levels of light as well.
Water when the top 2 or 3 inches of the soil is completely dry—watering every two or three weeks, is usually adequate. During the colder months, water sparingly—only when the leaves begin to look slightly wilted, or about once a month.
Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.
Tolerates lower levels of humidity, around 30-35%.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to 2 years. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil or succulent potting mix. Snake Plants generally only need to be repotted every 3-5 years. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
