Snake Plant

These are one of, if not the easiest plants to care for. Snake plants are resistant to insects, drought, and extreme low light conditions. They also have air-purifying qualities.

Light

Prefers indirect bright sunlight, with some direct sunlight throughout the day. They can tolerate all light levels, adapting from dim light to direct sunlight.

Care

Allow soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to rotting, it’s preferable to slightly underwater. In winter, water monthly or when soil is dry. Does well in average home humidity or high humidity.
