  • 🌞

    Light exposure

    Sansevieria Trifasciata Whitney likes bright light and can stand plenty of direct sunlight. All plants live in low light conditions, but their growth will be slow or non-existent.

    Watering

    Snake Plants need a little water to live because they are drought-tolerant. As you can imagine, they usually die because of over-watering.

    Check every two weeks how humid is the soil and only water the Snake Plant if the soil is completely dry.

    Terracotta pots, instead of plastic, are recommended because they absorb part of the humidity. If the plant is placed in low-light conditions, you will probably water it once every month.
