What is a Snake Plant?
If a prize were available for the most tolerant plant, Snake Plant would certainly be the winner! These plants can be neglected for weeks at a time; yet, with their strappy leaves and architectural shape, they still look fresh. Because the Snake Plant can survive in just about any environment and tolerates drought well, it is a great plant for beginners. Snake plants are also natural air purifiers.
How to care for a Snake Plant
Snake plants are very easy to care for. They do not need to be watered every day or even every week; they thrive by being watered every 2-6 weeks, depending on your home’s temperature, humidity levels, and light. Just be sure to drain after watering or they may suffer root rot. This plant is great for travelers who are not home a lot because they require so little maintenance. Snake plants prefer medium light, but will tolerate low or high light. Avoid direct sunlight.
