Q.Mother In Laws Tongue/snake Plant

Zone sandown,NH zone 5 | Landscaper added on April 13, 2020 | Answered

Have a snake plant, about 15 years old…..healthy and thriving but no matter what kind of pot I put it in….only part of the plant actually grows completely straight. Some of the leaves fall over. I love the ones I see that are all standing straight. Is there something I’m doing wrong? It has always been an indoor plant.

This can be a sign of overwatering, though. These plants will prefer soil to be on the dry side. It can, also, be a symptom of too much light.

Here is an article that will help:
