Light Conditions & Temperature Of Snake Plants
Snake plants need a moderate amount of bright light for proper growth.
While it can tolerate partial shade, very low light affects the color of the leaves.
For best results, grow it at a location where it receives filtered bright indirect light.
Watering and Feeding
Like most other types of succulent plants, Ceylon bowstring hemp doesn’t require frequent watering.
Water the plant deeply once, until the water starts to drip through the drainage hole in potted plants, and then allow the soil to dry completely before watering again.
Make sure to discard the water collected in the saucer underneath the pot and never let the plant stand in water or the soil to get soggy.
The plant also cannot tolerate over-watering.
Reduce watering of snake plants in winter and water only sparingly throughout the cold weather.
