    About Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

    Care Instructions

    Light Requirements:

    Snake Plants thrive in a wide range of light conditions, from low to bright, indirect light. They can even tolerate some direct sunlight. This versatility makes them suitable for almost any indoor or outdoor location.

    Water Requirements:

    Water the plant sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering is the most common cause of problems for Snake Plants, so it’s better to err on the side of underwatering. Reduce watering in the winter months.

    Soil Requirements:

    Use a well-draining potting mix. A cactus or succulent mix, or a blend of potting soil with sand and perlite, works well for Snake Plants.

    Humidity:

    Snake Plants prefer low to moderate humidity levels and can tolerate dry indoor air, making them well-suited to indoor environments.

    Pro Tip

    Snake Plants are excellent air purifiers. They help remove toxins from the air, making them a great addition to bedrooms and living spaces.
