Snake plants are fairly low-maintenance. Here are some care tips:

☀️ Snake plants thrive in indirect sunlight, making them perfect for rooms with filtered light or away from direct sun. They can also tolerate low light conditions, but growth may slow down. Avoid exposing them to intense, direct sunlight for extended periods, as this can scorch their leaves.

💦 Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Stick your finger into the soil about an inch deep – if it feels dry, it's time to water. Overwatering is one of the most common issues with snake plants and can lead to root rot. Water sparingly during the winter months when growth slows down. (Do not water more than twice a month.)

🪹 Snake plants prefer well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging, which can cause root rot. A mix designed for cacti and succulents works well. If you're repotting, choose a pot with drainage holes to ensure excess water can escape easily.

🌡️They do best in average to warm temperatures, ideally between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Avoid exposing them to temperatures below 50°F (10°C), as they are sensitive to cold drafts and can suffer damage or even die if exposed to prolonged cold.

🍴Feed your snake plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength during the growing season, which is typically spring and summer. Fertilize sparingly, as snake plants are not heavy feeders. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows down.

🪲 Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Regularly inspect the leaves, especially the undersides, for signs of pests like webbing, sticky residue, or tiny insects. If you notice any pests, treat them promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil, following the instructions on the product label. You may need to repeat the treatment every week or two until the pests are eliminated. Additionally, isolating the affected plant can prevent the pests from spreading to other plants in your collection. Regularly cleaning the leaves with a damp cloth can help prevent pest infestations and keep your snake plant healthy.
