In this post, I am going to share tips on how I repot a snake plant and other useful growing tips. It is such an amazing experience to pop open a container this durable houseplant has been growing in. You will no doubt find a surprise each time.
Repotting the Snake Plant
This video was so much fun to make because It was super real-time. I had no idea what was going to be in the original container when I opened it. Be sure to comment on the video to let me know what you think of the container I end up using to display the plant in my home.
This video is on my YouTube Channel @brenhaas. If you have trouble viewing it please send me a message on my contact page.
Items in the video include
- the portable potting table I found on Amazon.
- Snake Plant
- Containers I used were a recycled pot that you can find at garden centers and buy in bulk on Amazon.
- Promix Potting soil I purchase at Menards. This soil is the perfect easy to transport mix for potting because it doesn’t hold moisture like many potting soils.
I highly recommend checking out the Houseplant Handbook to grow plants indoors successfully. I wrote about this publication on my site and use the book daily.
About the Snake Plant
The houseplant identification names are bowstring hemp, devil’s tongue, good luck plant, Mother-in-law’s tongue, snake plant, and Sansevieria trifasciata. The evergreen succulent has upright, sword-like leaves. The plant during the wintertime should be kept barely moist. In summer water thoroughly but allow to become slightly dry. Be sure to only transplant when the plant totally fills its pot with roots and steams. This may take 2-3 years indoors.
What I love about the Snake Plant
- LOW LIGHT
- LOW MAINTENANCE
I just love my snake plants indoors. I have tried a few in my dome and so far they are doing very well even in the cool winter conditions.
This is one of my favorite containers to use indoors. Once again, I wish I would have bought more of these when I spotted it locally. What do you think of this post?
