Color, texture, and shape are essential to the succulent garden. There are hundreds of types of succulents, so each garden is unique. With its tall, leathery leaves, a snake plant stands out among the other succulent plants. These types of gardens are extremely satisfying to watch grow, and they are challenging to build.
Start by choosing a shallow planter that is wide. To make your snake plant the focal point of your arrangement, be sure to choose plants with similar light, soil, and fertilizer needs.
Thriller, Filler, Spiller Combination
Combining thrillers, fillers, and spillers helps to make a beautifully crafted container garden. It uses three classes of plants: one that is captivating, one that fills in the open spaces in the structure, and one kind that spills out of the edges of the container.
For this container display, you’ll need snake plants, purple wandering jews, and silver pony feet or creeping jennys. This display can be made as small or as large as you would like.
Terra Cotta Pot Arrangement
For succulents, cacti, and allied plants that thrive in drier soils, terra cotta pots are the perfect choice. It helps prevent root rot and other water-related damage to plants when the walls of the pots absorb some moisture. Terra cotta pots now come in a variety of styles, so they’re no longer boring.
Select several terra cotta pots of various sizes to create some style diversity in your arrangement. Put your plant arrangement on a bench or shelf to make it the focal point of the room. Using snake plants is a good idea, too.
Rocks are a great way to finish off the top of a planter whether it’s a long planter full of snake plants, or just a single one. Their texture beautifully complements all the smooth foliage of the snake plants, and the soil stays put as a result.
A single snake plant in a room will enhance the overall look of a room. It is versatile enough to complement almost any design style. From boho to modern, you can find a plant stand that suits your taste.
Trio Of Snake Plants
Put your three favorite snake plant varieties in their own pot. In design, it’s well known that odd numbers look better. Make them look even more special with unique custom-made pots. Custom pots add the extra touch of significance to any display.
Leaf Propagation Tubes
Take propagation to the next level by making it a display. There are all kinds of cool tubes available, so you’ll have lots of design options. Some hang on the wall while others stand upright. It’s especially fun to watch the roots grow.
Macrame Hanging Planters
The macrame hanging planters may seem like they would be good for cascading plants. If you only decide to use these hangers for that one type of plant, you miss out on a beautiful look. Macrame hangers can hold your snake plant upright, looking fantastic.
Macrame hanging shelves can add a full shelf for plants at the same time as creating a macrame-like look.
Potted plants can be arranged in dozens of pots on a planter bookshelf, giving you plenty of space for potted plants. The shelves are very useful if you have a window with a lot of natural light, since you can place them in front of the window to ensure that your plants get good lighting.
Find your favorite snake plants and arrange them on the shelves. You can also add a collection of trinkets or books to the shelf. Personalize the arrangement based on your preferences.
What Plants Go Well With A Snake Plant?
A snake plant goes wonderfully with a variety of low-maintenance plants. They share similar care requirements, making them easy to pair with. A succulent is a perfect pairing for a snake plant.
Don’t plant your snake plant with something that requires regular watering or consistently moist soil to avoid the risk of overwatering.
What Are The Benefits Of A Snake Plant?
We will discuss some of the greatest benefits of snake plants to make them stand out among other houseplants:
One of the best-known uses of the snake plant is that it is capable of clearing the air of toxins. This plant can remove carbon dioxide and other toxins such as xylene and formaldehyde. It even helps remove carbon dioxide at night, a key characteristic for a bedroom plant.
Snake plants thrive almost entirely on neglect. As you get familiar with your particular plant’s needs, you’ll know how often to water it. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should water it about two to six times a month.
Check to see if the soil is dry before watering during the active growing months of the plant. You will need to water it more frequently during these months.
Tolerant To Many Light Conditions
Its leaves should not be exposed directly to sunlight since that can lead to burning. You can use snake plants in a wide variety of light conditions.
Sansevieria varieties have long leaves and tapered ends, but they are very different other than those two features. I recommend you explore all the different options.
When Should You Repot A Snake Plant?
The snake plant does not require frequent repotting since it usually thrives in pots. You can wait 2-4 years before repotting your snake plant, depending on its size. Repotting your plants should occur when their roots start to reach out of the drainage holes in the pot. Therefore, even though they like to be root-bound, they will eventually need to be repotted.
When you pull up the snake plant, be sure to grip the leaves firmly at the base in order to prevent tearing any leaves. You do not want to replant the snake plant during its active growing seasons.
This article will hopefully provide you with the inspiration you need to make your own snake plant arrangement. Snake plants are an intriguing yet low-maintenance plant that will liven up any room.
