Durable and easy to grow, the snake plant gets its name from their long upright shape and their pointy tip. Snake plants make a no-fuss border plant or can be used in front of foundation plants such as clusia or podocarpus. They add an architectural look to indoor spaces and are perfect for narrow corners that need a little dressing up.
Plant the sansevieria in a location that gets direct sunlight or partial sunlight. Avoid completely shaded areas since the plant will grow thin and weak under these conditions. Sansevieria likes a well-drained soil; wet feet will cause it to get root rot. Fertilize the plant three times a year with a well-balanced fertilizer. Pruning is only necessary to remove any damaged or old leaves that detract from its clean, stylized look.
