Snake plants can survive in a variety of lighting conditions, making them well suited for many places in your home. However, they will thrive in bright, indirect lighting.
The snake plant will require watering about every two weeks, but you should gauge your specific plant’s needs based on how the soil feels. If the soil is dry to the touch, it should be watered thoroughly.
