Sansevieria 

Light:

Snake plants prefer bright, indirect light and can even adapt to direct sun and also a degree of shade.

Water: 

Water moderately letting the soil dry between waterings from spring to autumn. During winter water very sparingly, about once or twice a month. The biggest danger with Snake Plants is over watering, especially in the winter months.

Temperature:

They prefer warmth and will suffer if exposed to temperatures below 10ºC. 

Fertilizer:

Feed a mild cactus fertilizer during the growing season; do not fertilizer in the winter.

Propagation:

The Snake Plant can be divided easily during repotting. Alternatively, new shoots, which emerge from the soil as spikes, can be taken and potted independently. 

Potting:

Snake plants rarely need repotting as they respond well to cramped conditions.  However, if roots are showing signs of splitting the pot re-pot in spring using a loose, well-drained potting mix. They will do well in sandier soils.
