Snake Plant Care Tips

Light Requirements

Sansevieria trifasciata is highly adaptable when it comes to light conditions. It can thrive in low light, making it a perfect choice for offices or homes with limited natural light. However, it will also do well in bright, indirect light.

Watering and Soil

The Snake Plant is known for its drought tolerance. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Use a well-draining potting mix and a container with drainage holes to prevent overwatering.

Temperature and Environment

Sansevieria trifasciata prefers temperatures between 70-90°F (21-32°C). It can tolerate occasional temperature fluctuations but should be protected from cold drafts and frost.

Fertilization

Feed your Snake Plant with a balanced, diluted fertilizer every 2-3 months.

Repotting

Repot your Sansevieria trifasciata when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its current pot. Typically, this will be every 2-3 years. Choose a slightly larger pot and fresh potting mix.
