Growing Snake Plant

Latin Name Pronunciation: san-suh-veer'-ee-uh 

Snake Plant (Sansevieria) may appear exotic and difficult to grow, but it has very easy requirements for care.

LIGHT: Provide your plant with bright, indirect light.

WATERING: Water about every 3 weeks. If the potting mix stays wet, the plant's roots can begin to rot. Plants require less water during the winter months when they are not actively growing.

TEMPERATURE: Provide room temperatures around 55-80°F.

FERTILIZER: When plants are in active growth from spring through summer, use a balanced (20-20-20) houseplant fertilizer monthly, diluted to half strength.
