Snake plants, also known as “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue” and Sansevieria, are one of the easiest houseplants to take care of. This succulent plant is very forgiving and perfect for beginners.
How to Plant Snake Plants
- Choose a pot with a drainage hole in the bottom. Terra cotta pots work well for snake plants, since they allow the soil to dry out more easily than plastic pots.
- Use a well-draining potting mix. A potting mix designed for “cacti and succulents” is ideal, as it will be more resistant to becoming oversaturated with water.
- When repotting snake plants, don’t bury them too deep. The plant should be planted as deep as it had been in its prior container.
▪︎Snake plants prefer bright, indirect light and can even tolerate some direct sunlight. However, they also grow well (albeit more slowly) in shady corners and other low-light areas of the home.
▪︎Keep the plant in a warm spot with temperatures above 50°F (10°C). In the winter, be sure to protect it from drafty windows.
Snake Plant Care :-
▪︎Sunlight :- Keep the plant indoor with bright indirect natural light or bright artifical light.Protect the plant from direct harsh sunlight as it can cause damage to the foliage.
▪︎Soil :- The soil should be well drained and fertile rich in oragnic content.
▪︎Watering :- Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
▪︎Fertilizer :- During the main growing season feed the plant with organic fertilizer once a month. Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.
