Do I need to replant?
He’s got tiny roots growing out of the bottom, and his soil is still very wet, I snoozed watering for the day but now I’m debating about re potting #NewGrowth #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewPlantMom #SnakePlant #snakeplants
4ft to light, indirect
10” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
Personally, I like to wait as long as possible. Like until there’s more roots than soil and it’s not retaining any water. Since it’s still retaining moisture I’d say wait!
@wildpurplechild that helps! It’s a 10 inch pot already so I’m like ehhh I don’t want to replant into something I can’t move!
Oh ya I feel that haha def keep it where it is! Plants tend to like to be a little cramped πŸ™‚
@bpark I would repot since the roots are coming out then bottom. Repot in a pot with drainage and a good draining soil. Happy growing. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸŒ±
@KikiGoldblatt should I try to get rid of the soil he’s in now? Or just add to it? There’s no signs of overwatering I just don’t want that to happen!
How long have you had the plant?

Edi - Never mind- Dec 28. It can stand to wait if you want.
@sarahsalith I got it for Christmas so about 5 months
@bpark yeh- sorry about that. I should have looked. ☺️
@sarahsalith oh I just saw your other comment! Haha sorry! Ok do I just wait until more roots are growing out the bottom?
@bpark I would- the real roots will be thick. Those roots may be feeling for pooling water if your pot sits in another pot.
@sarahsalith ok yes it does, thanks!
I'm wondering what kind of soil your snake plant is sitting in. The soil could be constantly wet because it's too peat heavy.
I would repot and add some new soil snake plants don’t like too much dampness.
@Kanteen it kind of feels like peat, I havnt dug into it too far to see if it’s all peat or just the top
Snake plants are one of the few plants that actually do love being root bound to their pot. My question is , is there new growth happening? I would probably repot into a more sansevieria friendly soil if it is dense soil it's currently in. However, I would probably just remove the old soil and put it back into the same pot depending on whats happening under the soil :)
