Snake Plant Care
Wondering how to grow snake plants? They are one of the easiest house plants to grow. They can tolerate a variety of light conditions including low light but they thrive in partial indirect sunlight. Sansevieria plants prefer well draining soil.
One issue snake plants might encounter is root rot. This happens due to overwatering and causes the roots of the plant to become soggy. Do not overwater your snake plant. Only water when the top layer of the soil feels dry to touch.
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.
