Sansevieria Plant Care Guide


Lighting: Snake Plants or Sansevierias can grow in any position with moderate to little light. However, most sansevierias grow best in bright indirect light with at least some direct sun for several hours a day.

Water: Snake Plants can easily rot from overwatering. Water moderately from Spring to Fall and significantly less in Winter months. Allow the soil to completely dry out before watering Snake Plants.

Soil: Sansevierias originate from arid desserts so choose a soil composition similar to that found in those areas. Plant sansevierias in a fast draining rich organic soil. If the soil in the pot isn’t drying well, add some horticultural sand, perlite, or pumice.

Temperature: Sansevieria plants grow well in temperatures between 60F and 85F degrees.
