Q.Growing Variegated Snake Plants From Seed

Zone 32164 | AliceM added on March 17, 2022 | Answered

I have a variegated snake plant. I rooted some cuttings and the new plants grew up all green. One of the plants recently bloomed. I saved the seeds. If I plant them, will the new plants be all green like the parent plant? Or will they be variegated like the grandparent plant?

Variegation like this only occurs in a portion of the plant. Any cutting that has no variegation, technically, loses the ability to be variegated anymore. Sometimes you get lucky and accidentally save variegation in the cutting and it could reappear, but its offspring will not be variegated.
