Basic Care

Snake Plants (Sansevieria) are a fantastic house plant choice if you are looking for something low maintenance. Although snake plants tolerate many different lighting conditions, they generally prefer to be partially shaded. If you are someone who forgets to water their plants regularly, then a snake plant is a perfect choice for you as they can often be left for quite some time depending on their exposure to sunlight. They are strong hardy plants that should only be watered once the soil is dry. You should also be careful not to get excess water directly on the leaves as this can cause damage.

Problem Solving

  • Root Rot – This is one of the most common problems that people have when it comes to caring for a snake plant. Ensure that you are not overwatering during the winter months as this can cause suffocation to the roots and in turn fungus will start to develop killing the plant. If caught soon enough, this can be fixed by repotting the plant carefully ensuring that there is plenty of drainage in the new pot.
  • Yellowing/Mushy Leaves – This problem could occur in your snake plant if it has had prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures. Ensure that your snake plant has consistent daytime temperatures of 65°F – 80°F (18°C – 27°C).
  • Fungal growths & Pests – Unfortunately, snake plants are quite prone to diseases and are commonly home to a variety of bugs that can cause damage or stunt the growth of your plant. You can resolve and prevent issues with. bugs and fungus by ensuring a few things
    • Make sure that you water directly in to the soil and avoid getting the leaves wet.
    • Keep the leaves dust free
    • Maintain good airflow around your plant
    • Remove any severely affected areas of the plant.
