  • Origin: Snake Plants, also known as Sansevieria, are native to tropical regions of Africa and Asia.
  • Common Name(s): Snake Plant, Mother-in-law's Tongue.
  • General Care: Snake Plants are the ultimate green companions for those who believe in the motto "low maintenance, high rewards." They thrive in a wide range of light conditions, from low to bright indirect light, making them adaptable to various environments. These hardy plants prefer well-draining soil and have a forgiving nature when it comes to watering. They can tolerate periods of neglect and are known for their ability to purify the air (although you’d need a ton of them, read that NASA study again!)
  • Growing Period: Snake Plants have a slow to moderate growth rate, adding height and volume to their upright, sword-like leaves over time.
  • Soil Recommendations: Use a well-draining potting mix suitable for succulents and cacti. Incorporate perlite or sand to improve drainage.
  • Hardiness Zones: Snake Plants are typically grown as indoor houseplants but can also thrive in outdoor gardens in zones 9-11, where temperatures remain relatively warm.
  • Light Needs: Snake Plants are versatile when it comes to light requirements. They can tolerate low-light conditions, but they also appreciate moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid exposing them to intense direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves.
  • Pet Safety: While Snake Plants are generally considered to be mildly toxic to pets if ingested, their fibrous nature and bitter taste often deter pets from nibbling on them. However, it's always best to keep them out of reach of curious pets or opt for pet-friendly plants.

Fun Fact: Snake Plants are not only stylish green additions to your home, but they also work tirelessly while you sleep. They are one of the few plants that continue to release oxygen at night, making them the perfect bedroom companions.
