Trouble Shooting

Browning, yellowing leaves: suggests your snake plant has been overwatered or your plant lacks drainage.

If you’re unsure if the soil is completely dried out, wait a week before watering your snake plant – they are much more likely to suffer from overwatering than underwatering.

While the Snake plant is drought-tolerate this does not mean you can forget about it completely. If you accidently leave your plant soil dry for too long, you may see leaves go limp, droop, and possibly start to brown and curl. If this occurs give your plant a good soak.

Try to avoid touching the top of spiky top of the leaves, if the top breaks off or is damaged, the leaf will stop growing.
