Baby Snake Plant

Sansevieria, commonly referred to as Mother-in-Tongue law's or Snake Plant, is a contender for the title of most indestructible indoor plant ever created.

Sam, a member of the Moose team, left a baby snake plant in a dimly lit room at the beginning of lockdown and didn't check on it for three months, simply to give you a sense of how challenging it is to destroy one. When he came back, he was prepared to find a shrivelled heap of snake-like leaves, but instead, he discovered a plant that was completely unharmed and had even GROWN two more puppies (although we obviously don't advise this level of neglect!).An indoor plant that requires little care and is ideal for beginners. The ideal office plant, particularly if your desk receives little light. Additionally, it is renowned for its excellent air-purifying properties.

These plants prefer indirect or filtered light; any more can harm the plant but any less will cause a loss of colour.


Between waterings, allow the soil to completely dry out. Bottom watering is suggested, but avoid letting the plant sit in water.


Once a month throughout the growing season, a modest feeding is ideal.


 Does well in a typical home setting.

How to propagate baby snake plant?

A): The plant may be displaying signs of dormancy if the cutting was growing when it was first placed in a fresh pot of soil but has now abruptly ceased growing. Due to a variety of circumstances, growth and development temporarily halt during this time. A change in the environment is one of the most frequent.

B): It could also be that it is merely spreading its roots out beneath the dirt, which would explain why it stopped growing above the soil. It doesn't necessarily mean that growth isn't happening beneath the soil just because you can't see anything happening above it. My plants will occasionally grow extremely quickly and then abruptly stop. If the eye cannot see it, have faith that there is life there nonetheless.

Stepping back: Depending on the type of plant, there are various ways to spread it. I advise starting a snake plant off in some water for a short period of time. Snake plants don't require as much watering because they are cacti, which are accustomed to storing large amounts of moisture. It sounds like you chopped the plant and planted it in a new pot with fresh soil, which is entirely possible. However, I advise beginning the plant in water first so you can see that you've successfully propagated it by seeing the growth of roots in the water.

Use a container that will allow the plant to sit in water without hitting the bottom so that the roots have room to spread out, such as a cup or jar. It's not necessary to immerse the entire structure in water. When the roots start to grow, you should wait four to six weeks. After four to six weeks, you should be able to plant the cutting in a pot with new soil since you will notice tiny white sprouts emerging from the cutting's base.

It doesn't necessarily mean that growth isn't happening beneath the soil just because you can't see anything happening above it.

You appear to have followed in my footsteps when I first started learning about plants: I took a Monstera cutting, planted it in some soil, and prayed for the best. It hasn't grown and it's not dead either. A month ago, I dug it out of the ground thinking I would toss it away since I was so sick of it. It was actually growing since it included so many incredibly long roots. Therefore, what is likely happening with yours is that it is developing roots within that soil system, but you won't see any additional development on the top until you have a significant number of roots forming. Put the item in water to ensure the roots are growing before that time to avoid it. Consider it as laying the groundwork necessary for growth higher.

Snake plants are among the plants with some of the slowest growth rates. I'm really disappointed with them! After potting the snake-plant cutting, you should witness growth after four to six weeks if you first allow the roots to grow one to two inches in length. Although this is a general rule of thumb, cuttings can take a little bit longer depending on how much, if any, suitable illumination they are receiving. But if it's dead, you'd know. (The roots of the plant may be wet or drowning if they are mushy and dark-brown in colour rather than tan. Dark dirt and tan roots should always stand out clearly in terms of colour contrast.) I would advise you to carefully remove the cutting from the ground to check for roots. You can go back and drop it in some water if there are no roots, in my opinion. If not, you can discard it. However, if it's not going to die, it's fine. The general maxim is: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." If the plant doesn't appear to be dying, let it proceed at its own pace.
