Starbright Plant/Flower Care Guide

Snake Plant

Snake Plant
Light Icon


Bright light to full sun. Will tolerate low light.

Water Icon


Keep soil lightly moist in the growing season. In winter, water just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Take care not to water the center of the rosette of leaves because they'll rot easily if kept wet.

Temperature Icon


Average room temperatures 60-75°F/16-24°C. It will tolerate fluctuating temperatures, but not extreme cold.

Soil Icon


Soilless or cactus potting mix

Fertilizer Icon


Feed monthly spring through fall with this fertilizer for succulent plants

Propagation Icon


Division or leaf cuttings. Sansevieria is easy to divide because it has shallow roots. Simply turn the pot on its side and pull out the entire plant. Use a sharp knife to cut through the thick roots and pot each clump separately. To propagate Sansevieria by leaf cuttings, cut leaf into 2-inch (5 cm) pieces and place them right side up (the way they were growing) in moist perlite or cactus potting mix.
