Watering For Snake Plant:

As we have already discussed in many blogs on plant care, watering is something that depends on many factors. Factors like temperature, humidity affect the watering habit directly whereas the factors such as, soil type and soil quality are something that affect it indirectly.

Watering Snake plant once every 2-3 weeks is enough(on an average), however we must check the water amount in soil. Also make sure to let the soil dry completely for at least 1-2 days, so that there's no water is left near the roots.

Sunlight Requirements of Snake Plant:

Snake plants adore the shady bright sunlight however you can also place them in direct sunlight. Shady bright sunlight is very much appreciated though. Also, if you are planting it in a cold country, make sure to let it enjoy the holy warmth of the Sun and avoid placing it in direct Sunlight if you live in a place very hot in conditions.

Feeding Snake plants:

Snake plants can be fed any kind of plant food. And someone can also buy plant food that is specifically made for Snake plants. Also, if someone doesn't wants to be so specific then, Succulent plant food are a great choice.

Key takeaway:

Snake plants are one of the most forgiving plants. Although there are a lot of species of snake plants still most of them are very forgiving. I know a small plant can't make a big difference but still small changes can make huge differences in the long run.
