CareGeneral Maintenance: Snake plants are one of the easiest plants to take care of. Repot once your snake plant is extremely rootbound (you can see the roots coming out of the drainage holes) into a pot one size larger. These plants love to be rootbound, and will grow their foliage much faster when they're not focusing on their roots. To propagate a snake plant, the easiest way is by division. Separate the pups from the mother plant and put them in their own pots. Propagation via cuttings is also possible, but cuttings are known to rot before producing roots.
Temperature: Snake plants love the mild climate of indoors. They prefer temperatures ranging from 18°C-25°C, but do not allow your plant to go below 15°C.
Light: For optimum growth, keep your snake plants in bright, indirect light. Direct light will burn their leaves. Snake plants are known to be survivors in near total darkness, but if kept in the dark, they will grow extremely slowly and will eventually die without light.
Watering: Snake plants have very succulent-like leaves, and rarely need watering. Water when 50-70% of the soil is dry. They will need more frequent watering during the growing season, but still very sparingly compared to most other plants.
Soil: Snake plants will thrive in a blended soil of 50% regular potting soil and 50% cactus/succulent soil. They will also do well in pure cactus soil, but the added organic nutrition of potting soil will help growth.
Fertilizer: Snake plants rarely need fertilizing. When fertilizing, feed with a balanced houseplant mix once a month during the growing season (April - August), and stop during their dormancy period (through winter).
