Snake Plant in Large Linen PotSansevieria trifasciata
[ Pot Size: 6" - 7'' | Height: 16" - 17" ]
Also known as Sansevieria or a Striped Mother-in-Law's Tongue, this Snake Plant comes planted in a textured matte-white ceramic pot. Snake Plants produce tall, sword-shaped foliage that require little pruning. Place in bright indirect light for faster growth, but plants will also tolerate low levels of sunlight. Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a cup of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided.

Plant Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well.
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
