Here’s the story of Jake having an experience of choosing good light consumption for his snake plant.
Let us hear Jake’s story
I had a bit of an issue with my snake plant and I needed to know what kind of lighting it needs.
I looked online, but all the answers just said that they need bright light. That’s not very helpful!
Luckily, there was this one person who had posted under their picture…
…that theirs only got strong sunlight for a couple hours at midday.
My mom always leaves her window open when she goes to work in the morning…
…so my room gets plenty of sun in the morning as well as late afternoon.
So it should be fine if I keep it next to me on my desk where it gets lots of sun during those times…
…and give it brighter lights in between them right?
Well after all of the thinks and calculating all of the factor.
I choose to put it between, I give it enough of light but not over.
Using drafty dark paper, and I put it on the window so the light was not to strong neither too weak.
On the next week, its grow so well and now the size was beyond of my expectation.
They prefer to be placed in ambient, indirect light. If they are receiving direct light, they can dry out fairly quickly and may need water closer to every 10 daysArati Menon, Senior Editor, Food52.com
Here’s the interesting part…
Fabulous Star Among Succulent.
The snake plant is native to Africa’s tropical western region, from Nigeria to Congo..
…where she goes by the scientific name Sansevieria trifasciata; however, she goes by a variety of other names.
She is most recognized as “snake plant,” or “mother-in-law’s tongue” because of the shape…
…and the sharpness of her leaves.
In Brazil, they call her “Espada de São Jorge,” because she is associated with the sword of Saint George…
..and in Japan, they call her “Tiger’s tail”. Like all famous people, the snake plant suffered criticism.
She was associated with bad luck. This is just a rumor.
In fact, the plant was cherished in ancient times and was believed to bring good luck in several countries.
In China, people who possessed this plant were subject to receiving eight virtue gifts from the Eight Gods:
which includes Prosperity, Beauty, Long Life, Intelligence, Health, Art, Strength, and Poetry.
This plant will attract positive energy and good luck to your home…
…giving you a feeling of well-being and a feeling of security.
The snake plant is very resistant to insect bites and humidity, and can go 2 to 3 weeks without being watered.
She prefers warmer climates as she was raised in extremely arid soils. Below 50°F can be dangerous.
Green beauty prefers to dry out before watering, so make sure to water it in moderation, especially during the winter.
It is the perfect plant for apartment dwellers because it does well in low light…
…or dark areas and can survive with a medium to indirect light.
Grow In The Dark
In contrast to other indoor plants that uptake oxygen during the day…
…and release carbon dioxide during the night due to the absence of photosynthesis.
The snake plant uptakes carbon dioxide and releases even more oxygen at night than during the day.
Impressive, isn’t it? Fun fact: 6 to 8 snake plants placed in a room deprived of oxygen can keep a person alive.
But Still, Light Is The Key!
Don’t ever put your plant out of light. Remember lightning is the key!
Well, one indication of maintaining your households happy is that they are placed inside the home.
Plants are generally capable of resisting warmer or colder climates and short-term water surplus or shortage.
If you want to make the most of your plants, however…
…you need to put the water and nutrients in the right climate to survive.
Where You Should Put It?
Every houseplant in your house has one thing in common.
All of them need the sun but the amount they need is different for every plant.
Don’t just think about your indoor plants.
It does not mean that the plant is best for your housing because it fits into the décor of a certain area of the house.
Cacti and suculents require continuous day-to-day sunlight.
Foliage plants take approximately 8 hours of daylight.
The amount of lightning is determined by the plants that you grow so we recommend that you research specific plants.
Lightning actually helps plants to grow, the heat of the lightning interacts with nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere.
As a result, nitrates are formed.
When diluted with the rain, they fall to the ground as a natural fertilizer.

…to every vital parts of the plant organ to solidate their root, stem and leafy in vigorous growth.
All in all, to realize happy growth with output like flower or fruits, it will be a good news for those growers or farmers.

….lack of vitality, and fall behind as those growth with scientific light recipes.
Snake plants prefer bright, indirect light and can even tolerate some direct sunlight.
However, they also grow well (albeit more slowly) in shady corners and other low-light areas of the home.
Keep the plant in a warm spot with temperatures above 50°F (10°C).
