Snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) is a popular houseplant that is known for its hardiness and low-maintenance requirements. It is also known by other names, such as mother-in-law’s tongue, Saint George’s sword, and viper’s bowstring hemp. They are succulent plants, which means that they store water in their leaves. This makes them tolerant of drought and makes them a good choice for people who forget to water their plants regularly. Snake plants are known for their air-purifying abilities. They can remove toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air. This makes them a good choice for homes and offices. Snake plants are also said to have some Feng Shui benefits. They are said to bring good luck and prosperity.
Planting & Care
Light: Snake plants can grow in a variety of conditions, but they prefer bright, indirect sunlight. They can also tolerate low light conditions, but they will not grow as well.
Water: The best way to water a snake plant is to let the soil dry out completely between waterings. Snake plants are drought-tolerant plants and can survive with very little water.
Fertilizer: Snake plants are not heavy feeders and do not require a lot of fertilizer. In fact, overfertilizing can be more harmful than underfertilizing.
Temperature : They prefer temperatures between 65 and 85 °F
Potting: Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.
Pruning: Pruning Snake Plants (Sansevieria) is generally minimal, as they are low-maintenance and slow-growing. However, occasional pruning can help keep your plant healthy and looking its best.
