It literally requires the most minimal effort of any plant I have ever owned. It sits by a north facing, shaded window and thrives with very little maintenance while still looking beautiful.
This plant came home with the least amount of pests and she has large leaves that are easy to clean and to take care. I have also neglected her water once so far, she’s still thriving!
Beautiful Snake plant, this one is called Laurentii. Formally known as Sansevieria, the Dracena Trifasciata c. laurentii is pretty, good for your air indoors and pretty hard to kill!
Super easy to care for! A staple houseplant for the modern green home 🏡 I treat my snake plant to direct sunlight ☀️ and it treats me with Samwise Gamgee level dependability.

How to care for Snake Plant
Snake Plant needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Snake Plant can tolerate being far from a window and light source.
Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Snake Plant in your home 🏡.
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 Snake Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
