Plant Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well.
About every 14-20 days. Allow soil to dry out completely and water less often in winter.
Level of Care
Easy! Just make sure not to overwater.
The NASA Clean Air Study has ranked the Snake Plant as one of the most efficient houseplants that remove formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, and trichlorethylene from the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild cactus/succulent fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions above 50°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
Light, loose & airy. Cacti/Succulent Mix or African Violet Mix work best. If using All-Purpose Potting Mix, just add some perlite, vermiculite, or sand.
Pruning & Propagation
Trim damaged leaves down to the base with clean shears. To propagate, divide plant when repotting during the spring.
Sorry! Contains saponins, which are chemical compounds that can make dogs and cats nauseous if the leaves are consumed
