With a free-draining soil mix, snake plants do best because they are prone to rot easily. It is best to ensure adequate drainage through a soilless potting mixture. Use a terracotta pot that will not trap water inside and remove any standing water from the saucer promptly.
Even if you almost forget about them, snake plants do well. Enable the soil to dry out between waterings and take special care in winter not to overwater. When watering, try to stop making the leaves wet. Place your snake plants in indirect light and fertilize them with an all-purpose plant food during the growing season
Note: Size and texture of plants may vary according to seasons.
