Sanseveria - Snake Plant, Mother-In-Law's Tongue

Snake plant is one of the most tolerant house plants. It tolerates most light exposures but may need some shade from direct sun. Use any well drained potting soil and allow the plants to dry between waterings, especially during the winter. Ideal temperatures are 62 to 65 degrees at night and up to 85 degrees during the day. Repot in early summer if needed.

Propagation is by division or leaf section cuttings. When using leaf section cuttings, keep track of the upper end. If planted upside down the cutting will not grow. Plants produced from variegated cuttings will be green.
