Snake Plant Care
The snake plant, also known as Dracaena trifasciata, is one of the most popular and hardy houseplants.
Sansevieria trifasciata was the botanical name for it until 2017.
However, there were just too many similarities with Dracaena species to ignore.
The plant has rigid, sword-like leaves that grow between six and eight feet tall.
Snake plants come in a variety of colours, but most have green-banded leaves with a yellow border.
Because it is difficult to kill, the snake plant is an excellent choice for new gardeners.
It looks excellent in a container and thrives on the floor or in tabletop arrangements.
In warm weather, the snake plant thrives, but in cold weather, it struggles.
Snake plants like light that is indirect yet consistent, with some direct sunlight.
They can adapt to full daylight and will also thrive in dimly lit environments.
A loose, well-drained potting mix is ideal for snake plants.
Between waterings, allow the soil to dry out.
Reduce watering to once a month or whenever the soil feels dry to the touch during the winter.
