Snake Plant - 8in


This is the plant for those born with black thumbs. Dead easy to take care of, this African native has tall hard vertical leaves with green striations. They will do fine in either well or poorly lit homes. Thriving on neglect these charming snakes will be happy anywhere in your home, but give off oxygen in the night and would serve well in a dimly lit bedroom. 

Growing Conditions

  • Light: This plant is quite forgiving in terms of light exposure but would still prefer some steady indirect light with occasions of direct light in between. Can live in either full sun or very low light conditions. 
  • Water: Drought resistant this plant prefers its soil to be thoroughly dry between waterings. Monthly waterings during the winter months would be sufficient. Better to error on the side of caution and underwater this plant. Do not overwater or let the roots sit in water or else the leaves will drop and root rot will set in.
  • Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature between 18 - 30 °C.
  • Soil/Nutrients: Regular fast-draining potting soil or an all-purpose cactus soil. Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer during the warmer growing season. Snake plants do not require repotting very often, but if it's growing rapidly during the growing season aim to repot annually. 

    This plant can be inserted, while still inside its plastic liner, into one of our Medium Cylinder Pots. However it should be repotted into a larger container, like our Large Cylinder Pot, to allow for growth. Shop our Plant Pots here

    • 8in refers to the diameter of the plants plastic liner. 
    • Approximate Height 3 - 3.5 ft
