For all the indoor gardening novices who need help keeping their leafy friends alive, we asked Carmen Devito of Groundworks Inc. and west elm Market’s Brooklyn Blend Potting Soil to create care sheets for 8 of her favorite houseplants. Use them to greenify your home this spring!
Name: The Snake Plant (Sansevieria)
Light: Low to High
Water: Low ( once every 2 weeks )
The Sansevieria is a ubiquitous houseplant for good reason: You can’t kill it, except with kindness! Just DO NOT OVER-WATER, especially in the spring and summer seasons. The Snake Plant is also known as Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, and is a favorite food of African elephants. I love how architectural it looks, especially in the right container. If it is really happy it may even bloom for you!
A Note On Pets: Always check with your vet before bringing a new plant into your home.
