Q.Curling of snake plant.

Ishamnajeeb added on August 28, 2019 | Answered

My snakeplants have been curling. I do not over water my plants. Yes, they are also getting indirect sunlight. After searching in internet, I’ve found that thrips cause curling. I wanted to know if it’s the thrips that are making my plant shapeless. How can I identify if its really thrips and not somethig else? How to kill thrips? How to save my snakeplants from this infestation? Someone. Kindly help!

I don't see anything wrong with that plant at all! Twisting is natural, or could indicate a slight pH imbalance, but that will not be detrimental to this easy going, hard-to-kill plant.

Thrips will cause major damage to your plant very fast. You will see damage, insect feces, and long thin insects on your plant, making it very visible. If you have thrips there will be no question about it. It will be VERY evident. They tend to make themselves known since they kill plants extraordinarily quick.
