Light | In their native environments, Snake Plants happily grow in full sun or under shady canopies. At home, they can thrive in various lighting conditions. They will survive in indirect light, but keep them in lots of bright light, with a few hours of direct sunlight for best growth.
Water & Humidity | Allow the soil to dry out thoroughly between waterings. Snake plants prefer less water and dry environments as they can be susceptible to root rot.
Temperature | Will go dormant under 10°C but can survive down to 5°C without being damaged. Grow in temperatures above 15°C for the healthiest plant.
