Plant Care: Sansevieria

Sansevieria, or snake plant, is a great plant for anyone who can’t or simply doesn’t want to worry about plant care! They do well with any level of natural light and only need to be watered once or twice a month.

They like a dry environment and don’t need any pruning, just the leaves wiped down a few times a year. Also if you break a leaf off you can plant it and it will root! They are also great air purifiers, absorbing toxins and releasing oxygen.

They come in a variety of shapes and shades, so you can keep your space green and interesting even if you only choose to have snake plants!

  1. Thank you for the info on the Sansevieria! I inherited one from an overflow at work and it’s growing like crazy! Please tell me the best way to break up so I can make new plants from it. I understand they’re hearty, but can I simply pull it out and rip apart as desired or is there a kinder gentler way to separate the roots?
