This plant thrives in medium to bright, filtered or indirect light. Direct light should be avoided as it can burn this plants leaves. Sansevieria can even tolerate lower light conditions, it just won't grow as quickly or be as colorful.
Water and Soil
A well-draining potting soil that is amended with peat moss and a course succulent or cactus mix is best. This plant likes well-draining, porous soil. Water only when the soil is dry. This plant does not tolerate over watering so it is always best to err on the side of under-watering. Peat moss gets lighter in color when dry, helping you to gauge when this plant is ready for its next drink. A plants weight is also another great way to tell if it needs water.
Temperature and Humidity
Sansevieria does well in temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees F. Cold drafts and temperatures below 55 degrees F may damage this plants foliage and should be avoided. While this plant does fine in low humidity it can appreciate moderate to high humidity levels as well.
Sansevieria's are one of the best plants when it comes to air purification. They filter out formaldehyde and nitrogen oxide at night from surrounding air. This makes them a great addition to the bedroom! Snake plant is also extremely easy to propagate from cuttings.
