What should I do to save this man?
I was gifted this snake plant today and I'm told it probably hasn't been watered in months. Parts of it still seem alive so I think it can be saved. What should I do about the brown stalks?
Just snip the brown parts off, it will be fine.
will you be repotting them? if you’re gonna repot them id recommend waiting a while for them to recover. give them a good drink + prune off the brown bits and you’re good :)
Ah, snake plants are pretty resilient. I’m not sure, but it definitely looks dehydrated so giving it water should hopefully help it to bounce back ^^ I’d say, be sure to not overwater still as of course root rot is still a risk. Since it is a slow grower, and it typically has thicker leaves, it may take awhile for it to regain turgidity, so don’t worry if results are slow! Just keep giving it normal & regular waterings and it should be able to soak up & be better soon ^^ Pruning dead leaves/tips is usually always a good idea as well, as the others noted :)
