These plants aren’t favored by everyone because of their strong, bold look and tough, pointed leaves. They’re definitely not the soft, “touchy-feely” kind of plants but they certainly have character and present quite the silhouette.
These evergreen perennials are very long-lived, unlike some houseplants. If you’re looking for your own Snake Plant, there are many different species and varieties on the market with more being introduced each year
can find them tall or short, with round, flat or concave leaves, and variegated with dark green, silver, light green, yellow, chartreuse or white.
Snake Plants grown as houseplants average in height from 8″ to 7′. You can buy them in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14″ grow pots.
Easy does it with the watering. You want to be careful not to overdo it because your plant will rot out. Always make sure the soil is almost completely dry before thoroughly watering again.
Water your Snake Plants every 2-8 weeks. The watering schedule will vary for you depending on your home environment, type of soil mix, and pot size.
Even though Sansevierias prefer medium light (which is about 10′ away from the west or south window), they’ll also tolerate low light and high light. How versatile they are!
