Where can you put your snake plant? Although snake plants can tolerate some direct sunlight, they prefer indirect light. But you can also grow them indoors in low-light areas (albeit more slowly) such as shady corners. Maintain a temperature above 50°F (10°C) for the plant. Make sure the windows aren’t drafty in the winter.
Take Your Snake Plant Outside
This plant (also known as sansevieria) is showing up in many outdoor containers these days. That’s because this African native prefers the hot summer weather. Because of its upright, modern style, snake plants make excellent focal points for outdoor planters. The snake plant enjoys all light conditions (it can handle both full sun and low light) so you can place it on your porch in the shade or by the pool in full sun. Or in a pot with another tall tropical beauty, the bird of paradise.
What kind of houseplant does the snake plant go well with? Basically, any plant will do. It goes well with colorful annuals. The snake plant comes in many varieties. There are some leaves that are all green, and others that have beautiful variations in color. When combined with yellow annuals such as petunias, calibrachoas, and marigolds, Sansevieria trifasciata ‘Gold Hahnii’ or ‘Black Gold’ looks stunning. If you want, you can plant it in a colorful pot, like the one on the left, and add a Mandevilla, a Vittoria, and variegated Ivy.
Choosing plants that are green on green makes a calm, minimalist statement. Snake plants can also be paired with ivy that spills over the pot’s edge. Consider planting snake plants in a container with succulents and other low-maintenance plants (that doesn’t require much watering).
