My snake plant is growing new pups??
Its cute but I can't tell if it's a pup growing from the mama plant in or a new plant. Either way, I'm happy!! Fyi, the powder on top the soil is diatomaceous earth. #plantsmakepeoplehappy #freshleaffriday #snakeplant
3ft to light, direct
6” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
It should be attached to mom. I bet if you were to look under the soil you would find a half circle type 'stem' or stalk that is connecting them.

Baby sneks are super cute 😍
@tmbryant37 thanks for your comments and help. I really appreciate it. πŸ₯° I'm gonna dig down a little bit and see for myself.
So cute!!
Here you go. (:
Maybe I could save you from digging in the soil. πŸ˜‰
I started but stopped cause there are a lot of roots hairs that are very fine, so I didn't want to disturb them. But I snapped a new pic of the pup. Lol
@TinaRedchic those pups are SO cute!!!
I love that you use diatomaceous earth! Me too!
Chances is the baby's attach to the mom. I had one quite a distance from the snake mommy. When i try digging her up I found it attached so have to decided to leave it.
How do you find that the diatomaceous earth works for your plant pest control? Gnats have been driving me nuts over here!!
@Marthamaywho92 I find that Diatomaceous earth works the best. For gnats particularly, cause they like wet soil. So I add a layer to the tops of those plants having gnats attracted to them, and they are gone within a week. The only problem I face is when the Diatomaceous earth gets wet, it hardens and becomes ineffective. So you'll have to temp "butt chug" those plants treated. Also know as bottom watering. If you can't bottom water, create a hole or several holes in the top of the soil to put water into. Unless someone has better ideas? I'd love to hear from you. Good luck? πŸ˜„πŸ˜‰
@TinaRedchic awesome, I am 100% gonna try this! I bottom water anyways so hopefully this should work well
@Marthamaywho92 I bottom watered my monsters and she seems overwatered can you tell me what I may have done wrong? I waited until I saw that the top soil was getting wet pulled her out and let her drain well. Then she started getting yellow leaves, and some have brown spots. Any advice is appropriated. Thanks
@Marthamaywho92 Hi. I think you Monstera is telling you that she's got too much water. When bottom watering, the plant will actually suck up much more than it needs. I would use the measured amount that your Greg app recommends. And I find that the finger method of checking soil is the best. If your plant is dry about a half inch down or more then it's time to water again. Good luck to you! Hope this helps. ☘️🌡
@BlissfulAesha I don't own a monstera (yet!) So I don't know about themπŸ™ƒ
@Marthamaywho92 I think that last message was for me? In your original message you said the word "monster" so I assumed it was a mis spelled word. I apologize! πŸ˜‚ But my comment still remains for all your plants. I'm @TinaRedChic
