Snake Plant, Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, Rhino Grass – aka Sansevieria

Simply put, the Snake Plant has no competition when it comes to being a tough and durable houseplant. Caring for the Sansevieria is extraordinarily easy, especially when compared to traditional houseplants.

Caring for Sansevieria

Snake Plants require infrequent watering, often going three weeks without water while still holding their shape and colour. The easy watering schedule makes these plants resilient in near any location inside your home. The same goes for their relaxed lighting needs – Snake plants can be grown in a wide range of light intensity from low to high – thriving in low light.

The most important consideration when caring for Snake Plant or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue is to ensure a well draining soil is used when planting and potting Sansevieria.

Snake plant will benefit from a small amount of Tropical Houseplant fertilizer.
