Our tropical plant selections at Art's Nursery in Surrey are growing! We have an exciting cactatrium in the making, look forward to a special spot in the Fraser Valley dedicated to all the tropical plant parents. Today, we are sharing about a customer favourite and a low maintenance, easy to care for Tropical Plant: Sanseveiria a.k.a. Snake Plant. We currently have 3 varieties of snake plants at Art's Nursery, ranging from 4" to 8" to 14". If you'd like to experience nurturing and growing your own snake plant from a "baby" to maturity, we'd recommend getting a 4" plant and lots of patience as snake plants are slow growers. For the new plant parents, or if you're too excited to wait, we'd recommend choosing a 14" snake plant for immediate gratification!
We currently have three varieties in different sizes available. Choose from Snake Plant Moonshine, Laurentii or Plant Zeylanica. Snake Plant Moonshine is a solid pea green colour, Laurentii are the most popular and boast a green with yellow margin colour design and the Zeylanica variety shows beautiful light and dark green variations.
The best care practices for your snake plant is to keep it indoors in a full sun to part shade area of your home. Allow soil to dry before watering. Feed once a month during the growing season. Ensure it is kept between 12-27 degrees celsius or 55-80 degrees fahrenheit.
