Best Locations For Growing Moonshine Snake Plant

Moonshine Snake Plant grows well in room temperatures between 55 - 85 degrees F with average humidity and plenty of bright indirect light. Be sure to place this plant out of reach of pets as it is toxic if ingested. Avoid exposing your Moonshine Snake Plant to extreme temperature fluctuations or cold drafts during winter, as this can produce wrinkled leaves.  

Moonshine Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements

While Snake Plants can live in a variety of lighting circumstances, their ideal placement is in indirect medium to bright sunlight. Brighter light environments will produce new growth faster. 

Moonshine Snake Plant Care

Grow Moonshine in light, airy potting soil, either one specific for succulents, or a homemade mix containing one part perlite, one part sand, and one part potting soil to ensure proper drainage. Plant this Snake Plant in a pot with adequate drainage holes. Place your plant in environments ranging from 55 - 85 degrees F with average humidity. You can take a damp cloth and wipe the top and undersides of the leaves to keep them looking fresh. Repotting is recommended in the spring every 2-3 years.

Watering Moonshine Snake Plant

Water Moonshine Snake Plant with room temperature water when the top 2” of soil are completely dry. In warmer weather, water as often as needed when the top of the soil dries out. Stick your finger about 2” down to feel the moisture in the soil; Snake Plants are prone to root rot so be sure to let your plant dry out completely before its next watering. 

Feeding Moonshine Snake Plant

If your Moonshine Snake Plant is growing well, it’s not necessary to regularly fertilize it or provide additional nutrients. You can use a diluted, balanced fertilizer with an NPK rating of 5-5-5 during the warmer spring and summer growing seasons.

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.

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.


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!


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.
