How much should I water my Snake Plant?
Snake plants like to dry out almost completely between watering. It does not like to stay or sit in water. Plants that are watered too often will not survive and run the risk of developing root rot. If unsure, do not water. Snake plants can go weeks before being watered again. If too much water comes in to contact with the leaves, they may rot. It is better to water snake plants from the bottom if possible.

Any all-purpose, foliage fertilizer will work for Snake Plants. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow-release fertilizers.

What soil should I use for my snake plant?
A well-draining soil is recommended. If the soil holds too much moisture, the roots will be more prone to rotting. We recommend Espoma Organic Potting Mix. We have found this soil to retain the perfect amount of moisture needed for Snake Plants to thrive.
What kind of light does a Snake Plant need?
Snake Plants thrive in the lowest light conditions indoors, often living with just fluorescent light. They can handle some bright indirect light, but too much bright light may cause browning and their variegation to fade. This makes Snake Plants the perfect indoor plant to be used in an office, bathroom, or an accent in a bedroom.
