About Silver Snake Plant
Records of Dracaena fossils have been found in Europe and North Africa, near the site of the Tethys Ocean, which existed 252 to 66 million years ago. More recently, snake plant leaves and stems have been used to treat fever, pain, bleeding, and inflammation throughout many cultures in Africa and India. 🤒

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Silver Snake Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Much more aesthetically pleasing than other types of snake plants (IMO). They also have a more medium size to them. While I do love me a big tall plant, snakes are not my fave when they are really tall.
Absolutely gorgeous light green in colour.
These guys also shoot out babies really fast and I’ve had lot of luck propagating from leaf cutting and separating babies.
This is a very forgiving plant. Let it dry out before watering is fine. It can be in any kind of light but if the foliage tends to darken in less light. This one has two babies already. Propagate easily by snipping off baby from momma at the roots add a little cinnamon to the cut and replant in a new pot.
