The Gold Flame Snake plant, sometimes called “mother-in-law’s tongue”, is a beautiful houseplant with minimal care requirements. It is native to tropical western Africa and can tolerate periods of both low water and sunlight. This plant has lance-like sharp, slender leaves without stems. The leaves are dark green with light horizontal stripes and striking yellow vertical stripes. 

Best Locations For Growing Gold Flame Snake Plant

This plant is adaptable to a wide range of conditions. The Gold Flame Snake plant is a good choice for practically any room in your home or office. It can also be placed under a shaded patio during the summertime. Since it can tolerate a bit of neglect, these plants can be placed where you might forget to water them from time to time. 

Gold Flame Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements

The Gold Flame Snake plant is best grown in warm, bright locations but can tolerate shade. This plant would do well in any bright spot in your house, especially near a south-facing window with a sheer curtain on it. Make sure to protect it from hot afternoon sunlight, especially if on a patio in the summer. 

Gold Flame Snake Plant Care

Gold Flame is a great low-maintenance indoor plant. It can tolerate a wide range of environmental conditions. Like many houseplants, the Gold Flame Snake Plant may be placed in a shady outdoor location in the summer. They are easy to propagate by leaf cuttings or by dividing offsets.   

Watering Gold Flame Snake Plant

Overwatering often leads to root rot, so make sure to let this plant dry out completely before watering it. Water your Gold Flame Snake plant regularly during its growing season (spring and summer). Try to avoid pouring water directly into the rosette in the center of the plant where new growth occurs. 

Feeding Gold Flame Snake Plant

Fertilize this plant with an all-purpose, balanced fertilizer every one to two months during the growing season.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
