Snake Plants are known for being easy to grow and having bold, upright foliage. The Braided Snake Plant offers everything there is to love about Sansevieria, but with the added texture and visual appeal of braided foliage. Sansevieria trifasciata has rounded, thick foliage in a dark-green hue with light-green accents. The tall leaves gently taper to a point.
Best Locations For Growing Braided Snake Plant
Grow Sansevieria Trifasciata is any room of your home. The Braided Snake Plant is not particular about where it lives. A dry spot is best, but Snake Plants are adaptable. Average room humidity is fine, but avoid high humidity and drafty areas near vents.
Braided Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements
A sunny spot allows the Braided Snake Plant to maintain its showy leaves and look its best. Sansevierias are slow growers, and increased levels of indirect light can help this plant grow faster. While Snake Plants love light, they can live comfortably in medium and even low light.
Braided Snake Plant Care
The tall, thin leaves are gently braided and secured at the top. Snake Plants grow slowly so that the plant will maintain the braid for a long time. Sansevieria can go years without repotting, in keeping with its easy-care reputation.
Watering Braided Snake Plant
Allow the soil to dry out before watering. Snake Plants are in the succulent family, store water in their leaves, and appreciate dry conditions. Saturate the soil when it is time for a drink and allow excess water to run through the pot. It is normal to water every 1 to 2 weeks; plants may need less frequent watering during winter.
Feeding Braided Snake Plant
Feed Braided Snake Plants using balanced, water-soluble fertilizer twice during the growing season. Apply fertilizer in the spring to jumpstart growth and again mid-summer. Well-timed feedings can help the plant reach its full potential.
