Snake Plant - Common Problems and Questions
Help! My Snake Plant’s leaves are flopping over!
When snake plant leaves begin to flop, this can be a sign of overwatering. When this happens, stop watering and make sure the plant isn’t sitting in still water. If they continue to droop, you can cut off a healthy leaf near its base and propagate in water.
Why are my snake plant’s leaves so pale?
This happens when the plant is in direct sunlight. Snake plants respond to the level of light, so move it to a shadier location for darker leaves.
Will my snake plant give me bad luck?
In Feng shui, Snake Plants could be considered bad because of their long pointy leaves. However, their air-cleansing properties and strong presence are considered helpful and omit positive energy.
Common pests: May be attacked by Vine Weevil if outdoors. Typically not vulnerable to any pest.
