Low Maintenance Plants

Snake Plant

Sansevierias (snake plant) are some of the toughest plants you can find. Whether indoors, in your garden or on your balcony, these spiky beauties can put up with almost anything.

Soil

Snake plants do best with a free-draining soil mix, because they are easily prone to rot. A soilless potting mixture is best to ensure adequate drainage. Also be sure to use a terracotta pot that won’t trap water inside and promptly remove any standing water from the saucer.

Water, Light and Food

Snake plants do well when you almost forget about them. Allow soil to dry between waterings and take extra special care not to over water in the winter. Try to avoid getting the leaves wet when you water them. Place you snake plant in indirect sunlight  (although they are tolerant of a variety of light conditions) and fertilize during the growing season with an all-purpose plant food.

Built in air purifier

Snake plants are reportedly very effective at cleaning the air, removing toxins such as formaldehyde. Poor air quality is responsible for more than 100,000 premature deaths in the U.S. every year. It is very important for the quality of life to have the best pure air as possible. Snake plants have your back!

Conclusion

Snake plants are a great plant if you travel and are not home for long periods of time, if you live somewhere that doesn’t have an abundance of sunlight, or you just have the curse of the black thumb.
