Snake plants are all-round winners. Super cool patterns, easy to care for, tolerate low light conditions, are drought resistant... these plants are as bullet proof as it gets!
Size: 14cm pot x 50cm height
Light: Indirect light, medium light
Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every 6-8 weeks spring through autumn, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Cactus compost or a well draining soil mix.
Troubleshooting: If it receives too much direct light the colours and patterns may start to look faded.
Tip: This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. The roots of Sansevieria like it snug, so when repotting choose a pot that just about fits the root ball.
Did you know? As contradictory as it may sound, Sansevieria species produce flower stalks when root bound or mildly stressed!
