Plant Care Guide: Snake Plant

Snake Plant // Sansevieria Trifasciata

Adaptable is this beauty's middle name. The Snake Plant or Mother in Law's Tongue can live just about anywhere, as long as she doesn't get over hydrated. And to top it off, you can add Air-Purifying Superstar to the list.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
Don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
The snake plant is one of our top picks for novice plant parents, thanks to her ability to tolerate almost all light conditions. The only thing she's not a fan of is overwatering, preferring to almost completely dry out between waterings, making her the perfect plant pal for forgetful waterers.
