Botanical Name: Sansevieria
Common Name: Snake plant, mother-in-law’s tongue, viper’s bowstring hemp
Mature Size: Indoor growth typically maxes out at 4 feet in height
Sun Exposure: Indirect sun to low light. Very adaptive and forgiving plants as they will manage in full sun or dim locations.
Soil Type: Prefer drier environments, so snake plants can be potted in standard indoor plant potting mix with added sand and a rock bottom or potted with a cactus/succulent mix.
Water: Lean towards less water and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Reduce in the winter months.
Temperature: Maintain standard home temperatures, but prefer warmer conditions.
Potting/Repotting: Repot in the spring with fresh soil, once you notice roots poking out the bottom of the pot.
Fertilizer: Feed with a standard houseplant fertilizer during growing season.
Propagation: Easily propagated by division, which is best done when repotting, or by leaf cuttings.
Toxicity: Moderately toxic to people and animals!
Fact: Quick growers- make sure you pick a pot that is sturdy enough to hold the strong roots.
