Snake plants are known for being low-maintenance house plants! Although they are tropical, you may not care for them the same way you'd care for other tropicals; like a Monstera for instance. Snake plants prefer bright but not direct light BUT they can *tolerate low-light as well. This makes them a great option for a lot of indoor spaces that don't necessarily have great light.
Watering your snake plant is fairly simple. Water thoroughly until water begins to drain out the bottom of your pot and allow your potting mix to fully dry out before watering again. In ideal conditions, you will need to water every 3-4 weeks. Sansevieria are semi-succulent plants which means they are able to store a lot of water in their leaves. This also means that they are very prone to root rot. Allowing them to fully dry out is your key to success.
Because Snake Plants require a fast-draining potting mix, we recommend using our Cacti and Succulent Potting Mix.
*tolerating low-light simply means that this plant will survive in less than ideal conditions and may show some growth, but will not thrive.
