Sansevieria – Snake Plant

(30 customer reviews)

Clear

The only thing ranked lower than a Sansevieria on a “care difficulty” scale is a pet rock!  Sometimes called a Mother-in-Law Tongue plant or a Snake Plant, these Sansevieria need very, very little care.  This line of plants is native to arid regions of Africa and southeastern Asia and really thrive in dry soil conditions.  They only need to be watered about once a month…seriously.  The Sansevieria is highly ranked in NASA’s guide for filtering out air pollutants.  Get one of these care-free oxygen machines – it’ll work on cleaning your indoor air, and you won’t have to work on keeping it alive.

The Sanseverira (sometimes called “Sans” for short), is available in 2 sizes and a couple different varieties.

Plantz Profile

Check out this video to learn more about the Sansevieria from our plant specialists.

Read below for more information on caring for your new plant.

Description

Our Sansevieria does great in a variety of light conditions and it’s likely the easiest houseplant for a forgetful plant parent.  There’s really not much to it, but here are some tips to keep it growing:

Watering

Wet it and forget it – for up to a month!  Seriously, this plant really thrives in dry soil and needs an occasional good dose of water – so, make sure the soil dries out between waterings.   See our watering guide for more information.

Light

This native of Africa and southern Asia thrives in bright light, but it can be maintained in medium- and low-light conditions for a long, long, time.

Nutrition

The Sansevieria will not need to be fed during the first 6 months after it has shipped. During this time, it will use the residual nutrients from nursery production. After 6 months, it can be fed quarterly with a complete fertilizer formulated for interior plants. Please refer to our nutrient guide for details.

Cleaning

It’s a bit of an odd-ball plant with mainly leaves that are vertical to the floor and less likely to accumulate dust.  When it does get some dust, dirt, or anything else on it (that prevents the full availability of light from reaching the leaf surface), break out a towel and wet the towel with a light soapy solution and stroke both sides of the leaves with it.  Easy peasy.

Pruning

Again, its odd growth habit makes it a lot different from most other houseplants.  Sometimes an older leaf will become yellow or brown.  When this happens, prune it all the back to at or below the soil level.  It’s important to get it all the way down and remove the entire leaf.

Bugs

We’ve rarely seen an insect on Sansevieria.  Maybe a chance for mealybugs and scale.   If you see one, get out the soapy towel and wipe it off.

Trouble

In good light, this plant will not give you any trouble – provided you water it occasionally.

    Beautiful, full and packaged well for delivery across the country to CA. Sue and the team did great work again, as usual. Will definitely continue buying plantz!

    Plant arrived safely despite snowy weather after ordering- obviously someone thought to check weather before shipping which was great!

    • Sue Waltzer (verified owner)

      Winter and summer do present many challenges when shipping live plants. Thanks for your patience in getting it!

    The Plant arrived without the pot that we purchased!

    • Sue Waltzer (verified owner)

      We do not have an order for a planter for you but I’d be happy to help you select one if you’d like. I’ve sent you an email directly so please let me know if you’d like some help finding a planter for the sansevieria.
      Thanks – Sue

    I recently received my second order from Plantz (during severe weather in the NE). The plant was expertly packaged for safe passage and is equally stunning as the first. I had not intended to purchase a second plant but the first was so large, healthy and beautiful I decided to find a place for a second. More to follow, perhaps! I honestly would not buy an indoor plant anywhere else. I’ve been gardening with outdoor plants for 20+ years; Sue provides a wealth of helpful information for those of us adjusting to growing indoor plants with success.

    • Sue Waltzer (verified owner)

      A bit different growing indoor plants but you’re doing a great job! Let me know if you have questions as we’re all happy to help!
      Thanks – Sue

    The plant arrived in great shape—even though the delivery person left the package (clearly marked which side was up) upside down! Plantz had clearly anticipated this might happened and the plant was well packaged and unharmed. Thank you!

    • Sue Waltzer (verified owner)

      Thanks for letting us know and we’re sorry about the delivery! I will report this to FedEx.

    I won’t buy larger, statement piece plant from any other company! My Sansivieria is lovely but Fiddle Leaf 5 footer even lovelier! I was so impressed another was bought for a friend’s housewarming gift who absolutely loves hers! Sue from Customer Service is a dream to work with too!

    • Sue Waltzer (verified owner)

      Thanks Lynne! We’re happy to help if you need us and appreciate your business!

    What a great plant! Traveled perfectly (even to Texas in July) and was tall and full, just like the photos. Never been a huge fan of snake plants, just wanted something tall and narrow. But this one is so healthy and substantial (10″ pot) – it’s pretty darn lovely!

    • Sue Waltzer

      Glad to hear that you’re happy with it. They’d probably be a bigger hit with everyone if they weren’t know as ‘snake plants’ or ‘mother in laws tongue’!
      Thanks

    These plants are beautiful. I wanted more mature plants and I got them!

    • Sue Waltzer

      Glad you’re happy with your plant! We’d love a photo if you’d like to share one with us!
      Thanks – Sue

    • Sue Waltzer

      We’re so glad you’re happy with your new plants! They definitely need to be mature and well rooted before we ship them as they would not do well during the shipping process if they were not.

      Enjoy!
