Is this really a snake plant?
I bought a snake plant last week and I have this plant and they do not look alike but Greg has added this one as one and Iโ€™m not quite sureโ€ฆ does anyone know what kind it is? #SnakePlant
6ft to light, indirect
4โ€ pot with drainage
Last watered 4 days ago
It's a gorgeous snake plant ๐Ÿฅฐ
Itโ€™s a snake plant. Looks like three separate ones in one pot though.
@GiftedRainbow thank you so much! This is what the other one looks like so I thought it definitely looked different ๐Ÿ˜„
@Sassylimey thank you so much! My other one looks much darker and bigger leaves so I was not so sure! ๐Ÿ˜†
@GiftedRainbow one more question, do you believe it would help it grow more if I separated them?
@ValeriaJ haha! Thatโ€™s closer to what mine look like as well but it looks like yours is still growing but is out of space to spread. Whenโ€™s the last time you repotted it?
@GiftedRainbow Iโ€™ve never repotted it since I bought it! I found it on the clearance section at Kroger haha but I think I will this weekend if itโ€™ll help it!
@ValeriaJ you could separate them or repot them . I havenโ€™t separated mine and they are still growing fine. Itโ€™s whichever you prefer honestly.
@GiftedRainbow yours are beautiful too! I want mine to grow tall so I think Iโ€™ll give them more space! Thank you so much for your help! ๐Ÿ˜Š
@ValeriaJ glad I could help! I look forward to seeing how they change as they grow.
@GiftedRainbow I will definitely update!
@ValeriaJ itโ€™s a beautiful Sansevieria very stunning ๐Ÿ˜
@ValeriaJ They do like to be crowded, Iโ€™d unless there are roots coming out of the bottom wait! Hereโ€™s a picture of my Moonshine Sansevieria (just as a comparison)
@Ms.Persnickety sheโ€™s a beauty!! Thank you for the tip! Iโ€™m going to wait until the weekend to check the roots but Iโ€™m excited to see it grow as tall as the others!
@ValeriaJ Before you repot it, do a bit more research. There are some types of Sansevierias that do not grow particularly tall Check out the Sansevieria Samurai as an example!
@Ms.Persnickety ohh that would also make sense! Specially because it doesnโ€™t look like the regular snake plants you see here all of the time but Iโ€™m definitely going to look it up!
@ValeriaJ I have 7 Sansevierias and 2 on the way, and they all look a little different Here is my favorite The Starfish Sansevieria
Woah! I love how it looks!!! ๐Ÿ˜
Iโ€™ve only been a plant mom for a year so Iโ€™m still trying to learn and find the best ways to care for all of them, I feel like I have all different species but Iโ€™ll be honest.. I have killed most of my succulents ๐Ÿ˜… but everything else is doing super well! Thank goodness ๐Ÿ˜†
@ValeriaJ I think youโ€™ll be just fine, the beginning itโ€™s like a trail and error situation. Just remember to be patient. I too killed my share of succulents in the beginning but with this App, I either sooze them or only give them half of the recommended amount of water, if the soil is dry, so far fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž
