Black Coral Snake Plant
This 'Black Coral' Snake Plant (Sansevieria Zeylanica) is one of the best low light plants, with great indoor air purification. It thrives on neglect being drought tolerant and will let you know when it needs water by how easily the foliage can bend.
Black Coral Care Guide:
Sansevieria ‘Black Coral’ is an extremely tolerant and adaptable plant that thrives on neglect. It does well in bright indirect light and can even acclimate to a few hours of direct sun without burning. However, morning or evening sun is best, as prolonged afternoon sun can burn the leaves, leaving "holes".
Snake plants will grow best in bright light, although they are quite low maintenance in the fact that they are tolerant of low light conditions. Because of this, they are commonly found in offices and other spaces where there is not a lot of light, which makes it a perfect plant.
Temperature / Humidity:
Snake plants prefer warm temperatures between 70 and 88 ºF. They will decline in consistent temperatures below 50 ºF as it doesn't match their natural habitat.
Hailing from a native tropical environment, Sansevieria can tolerate a moderate amount of humidity, though they do not require it as they are more succulents.
Snake plants are extremely drought-tolerant plants, so please don't overwater. They prefer to be watered thoroughly but infrequently as they like to be completely dry beforehand.
When you water your snake plant, fully saturate the soil and be sure to let it dry out (tilting the pot to drain any excess water) entirely in-between waterings. These plants thrive on neglect, and overwatering is the easiest way to kill them by rotting their roots.
These plants grow best in a loose, sharply draining mix that helps with drainage. A good quality cactus or succulent mix is perfect with some added perlite, pumice, orchid bark and potentially activated charcoal.
Snake plants are actually a flowering plant! Although they rarely bloom when they are grown indoors, the inflorescence is a long stalk that holds several small, greenish-white, sweet-smelling flowers.
Sansevierias do not require much fertilization. Feed them with a balanced fertilizer diluted at half strength for best results. They will benefit from a small boost of nutrients during the spring and summer seasons, when they are actively growing (unless you have them under a grow light indoors).
