Sansevieria Care Guide

Snake plants can handle a wide range of light. The more light they get the faster they can grow. It is just important to keep them out of direct sunlight.

Water your plant sparingly, meaning once every 2 - 3 weeks. Overwatering is a common way to kill Snake plants. It is good to check the moisture of the soil. Do not water if the soil is still moist. Avoid pouring the water inside the ring of leaves, aim for the soil at the base of the plant. Free-draining soil mix is recommended for these plants as the roots are easily prone to rotting. Make sure the bottom of your pot does not trap tap water inside and always remove excess water from the saucer.

Snake plants are very forgiving and tolerate a wide range of temperature conditions. The ideal temperature is 60°-80° F. If the foliage turns yellow, move the plant to a warmer location.
