Q.How To Propagate Snake Plants

Zone 90062 | Anonymous added on March 20, 2022 | Answered

I have a dish of snake plants that were given to me. While I was ill they were not properly taken care of and two of the plants died. I am now seeing a new shoot from one of the remaining three plants. I have heard there is a way to grow these plant by cutting and burying the leaves. Is this correct and if so how is this correctly done.
