- Description: This evergreen perennial native to tropical West Africa and Nigeria, is a great addition to any office or household as a natural air purifier. Snake plants have strong and sturdy, sword-shaped leaves which are drought tolerant and retain the plants water. This plant can be easily propagated by leaf cuttings so you can multiply your family of snake plants or give them away as a gift. This particular variety has a washed-out greyish-green look on the entirety of the plant making this a very unique addition to any plant collection.
These tough plants thrive in any light level, from low to high. Typically they grow more quickly in brighter light, but strong direct sunlight burns leaves, especially when plants are outdoors. An ideal spot indoors is about 10 feet away from a west or south window.
One of the most common problems encountered with snake plants (and other succulents) is overwatering. These plants do not tolerate soggy soil well; they tend to develop root rot. To avoid this, follow these watering practices:
- Do not water too frequently. Let the soil mostly dry out between waterings.
- Tip: To know when it’s time to water, don’t just rely on how the surface of the soil looks. Instead, carefully stick your finger or a wooden chopstick a couple inches into the soil. If you feel any moisture or see soil stick to the chopstick, hold off on watering.
- Water from the bottom of the pot, if possible. This encourages the roots to grow downward and deep, helping to stabilize the thick, tall leaves.
- During the winter, while the plant isn’t actively growing, water less often than you would in spring and summer.
The Snake Plant is not picky when it comes to humidity! Snake Plants don’t need high air humidity and thrive in a dry environment, unlike other tropical indoor plants. That’s due to the area where they originally come from.
- Snake plants need well-draining soil similar to palms and succulents
- Divide and repot in the spring. Cut out a section containing both leaves and roots and place it in a pot with a well-draining potting mix.
- If a snake plant is pot-bound, it may flower occasionally. Fragrant, greenish-white flower clusters appear on tall spikes
Unfortunately, snake plants are toxic to cats and dogs.
Unhealthy Plant SignsRoot rot due to overwatering is the most common issue.
- If this occurs, remove any dying leaves and allow the plant to dry out more than usual. Snake plants are resilient and typically recover. However, if the plant continues to die, remove it from its pot, discard of any rotted roots and leaves, and repot in fresh soil.
