Native to West Africa, this resilient succulent has been a popular choice for homes and offices for decades. Easy to care for yet boasting an exotic appearance, the Snake Plant is the perfect addition to spruce up your living or workspace.


Snake Plant Planting and Care:

  • Light Requirements: Snake plants can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from low to bright indirect light. However, bright indirect lighting works best. Avoid placing snake plants under direct sunlight, as it may burn the leaves.
  • Soil: Use well-draining potting soil. A mix with good drainage, such as cactus or succulent soil, is ideal for snake plants.
  • Watering: Snake plants are drought-tolerant and prefer slightly dry conditions. Water them every 10-15 days. Be cautious not to overwater, as they dislike soggy soil.
  • Temperature and Humidity: Snake plants thrive in average room temperatures (around 65°F to 75°F). They can handle low humidity levels.
  • Fertilization: Fertilize snake plants once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) using a balanced liquid fertilizer.
