The Snake Plant, Mother In Laws Tongue or Sansevieria is commonly assumed to be just one species the famous Sansevieria Laurentii but the family in fact includes over 70 species which we explore here. The plant family split into two major groups, hard-leaved, which typically grow in deserts and arid environments, mostly found in Africa, notably Madagascar and soft-leaved species which are found in sub-tropical and tropical environments, mostly in South Asia. The Snake Plant at large is famous as an easy care plant, with the most famous species of the family, the Sanseveria Laurentii, known to handle low-light environments all the way through to full sun and can go long stretches without water. Unlike many plants, it also produces oxygen at night making it a popular choice in bedrooms. The Snake Plant tends to have striking Architectural Forms which make it a great low-maintenance feature plant.
Snake plants prefer indirect bright light with some direct morning sunlight. But they can adapt to full sun conditions and survive even in very low light conditions. This wide tolerance makes them a very easy care plant which is very versatile suiting most positions.
Snake plants although very easy care plants can be vulnerable to root rot, so a well-drained soil mixture works best. Pots with good drainage are important and terracotta pots can make a good option allowing excess water to evaporate.
Allow the soil to dry between waterings. In winter, reduce watering to about once every month or whenever the soil feels dry. Generally, err on the side of less water rather than too much. Avoid overwatering and wet feet where root rot can develop.
Snake plants prefer warm environments and will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 10C (50 degrees Fahrenheit). Place the plant in a place protected from drafts. A temperature range of 20C to 32C (70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit) is optimal. They can be sensitive to frost and will recover slowly so if grown outdoors they'll be best in a protected spot.
Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season or a balanced liquid slow-release 10-10-10 fertilizer or a 20-20-20 fertilizer diluted to half strength. Do not fertilize in the winter.
We recommend using our Plant Food available here.
According to the ASPCA, this plant is toxic to cats and dogs. Chewing or ingestion can result in vomiting and diarrhea.
Snake Plants have incredible striking and dramatic shards of foliage. These architectural forms, their low maintenance and lighting versatility make them popular with modern homes along fencelines and driveways. The iconic yellow and green of the Sansevieria Laurentii make them well suited to darker pots such as in charcoal grey or steel. But Snake Plants come in a wide array of colours and forms. Sansevieria Masoniana ‘Shark Fin’ has become a popular Indoor Collectors Plants where the wide form is a unique showpiece plant. Others like Sansevieria Black Sword have a muted moody appearance and can go well in a minimalist or modern design setting.
