Caring for your Snake plant


Water your snake plant only when the soil is completely dry throughout the entire pot. It's better to be on the side of underwatering than overwatering. Every 3-4 weeks for indoor snake plants is a good rule of thumb. When you do water, ensure thorough saturation to encourage a healthy root system. After watering, discard any excess water that collects in the saucer to prevent waterlogging and root rot.


Snake plants are incredibly versatile when it comes to light levels—they can tolerate anything from low to bright light. However, they'll grow faster in brighter light conditions. If you're transitioning your snake plant from indirect to direct light, it's essential to acclimate it gradually over a few weeks to prevent foliage from scorching.


For snake plants, it's essential to use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging and root rot. A typical potting mix formulated for succulents or cacti works well for snake plants. You can also create a mix by combining equal parts of potting soil, perlite, and coarse sand to improve drainage. Additionally, adding some organic matter like compost can provide nutrients for healthy growth. Ensure the soil is loose and airy to allow for adequate aeration and root development.

Temperature & Humidity

Snake plants are adaptable to various temperature and humidity conditions, but they thrive best in temperatures ranging from 60 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but may experience slower growth, while exposure to temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit can cause damage.

In terms of humidity, snake plants are not overly sensitive and can thrive in average indoor humidity levels of 40% to 60%. However, they can also adapt to lower humidity environments, making them suitable for a range of climates and indoor conditions.


You can feed your snake plant with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants every six months to provide it with the nutrients it needs to thrive.


Snake Plants are toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
