The Whale Fin can handle most lighting conditions. It is ideal to have it in moderate to bright indirect light. It will tolerate lower light and artificial lighting conditions. We recommend keeping it out of direct sunlight for long periods.
Snake plants do not need very much water to thrive. We recommend soaking the soil completely when watering and then allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. It is better to allow this plant to get dry than to allow it to stay too wet.
This is an extremely low maintenance plant. It is happy with average household humidity. Snake Plants are easily propagated by division of offsets. This plant will show you when it is ready to be repotted by outgrowing its pot with pups appearing to burst out. We recommend fertilizing every two to three months, spring through fall, with a diluted fertilizer.
