How to Take Care of Snake Plant Indoors
Care of a snake plant is easy! They can tolerate a variety of light conditions including bright light or low light but they thrive in part sun to partial shade in bright indirect light. Full sun may scorch the sword shaped leaves and cause leaf burn.
Sansevieria soil should be very well draining. Avoid wet soil as this can cause root rot. Make sure to choose a container with a drainage hole and do not overwater. A regular potting soil such as our Organic Potting Mix would be the best.
The Black Coral Snake Plant mature size is up to 1-2 feet tall and up to 1 foot wide at full maturity. They will grow to their container’s size and will eventually need to be repotted. We recommend repotting every 2-3 years as needed. Fertilizing snake plants is not necessary but will help the plant grow during the active growing season.
Snake plants are grown as indoor houseplants in temperate climates. They can be grown outdoors in USDA growing zones 9-11 where the weather is warm all year long. Water the air purifying plant whenever the soil feels dry to touch, usually about once a week. They are drought tolerant so be sure to check the soil’s moisture levels before watering.
