Strong, sturdy, and compact, the Twist Snake Plant is a perfect choice for even the most neglectful plant parent. This bold snake plant features twisted leaves with gold margins and green centers. Foliage emerges from the base in a bird’s nest shape. Botanically it’s named Sansevieria trifasciata and common names include ‘Twisted Sister’, or ‘Gold Twist'. This plant originates from Africa, Madagascar, and Southern Asia. 

Best Locations For Growing Twist Snake Plant

A great location for this plant would be close to a bright east- or west-facing window where it can receive adequate filtered light and warmth. The Twist Snake Plant is also able to tolerate periods of low light, which makes it perfect for a bathroom, bedroom, or office.

Twist Snake Plant Sunlight Requirements

Snake plants prefer bright indirect light; usually placement in an east- or west-facing window is perfect. However, if you need to add some green to a low-light area, Twist Snake Plant will tolerate it. Give it a try to green up your small spaces!

Twist Snake Plant Care

This plant is super easy to grow and ideal for beginners. Sansevieria trifasciata twist is a slow grower and usually doesn't need pruning. Use a cactus and succulent soil when repotting every few years, and ensure it fits snugly in its pot. 

Watering Twist Snake Plant

Allow this plant to dry out completely between waterings. Depending on the light exposure and humidity levels, drying out the soil may take a longer or shorter period of time. When you go to water, ensure that the soil and pot both have adequate drainage and soak the plant thoroughly. Snake plants do not like their roots to be sitting in water. During the winter months, water your twisty friend sparingly.

Feeding Twist Snake Plant

The Twist Snake Plant is not a heavy feeder. Use a liquid fertilizer for houseplants or succulents diluted to half the strength recommended on the label every 2-3 months.

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.
