Potting After Rooting Snake Plant

Anonymous added on July 15, 2016 | Answered

I have used the water method to root cuttings from my snake plant. Now that they have roots, should I let the stalks dry out before I plant them in dirt, or pot them right away? I am worried about root rot. I have had the same snake plant for over 12 years and my son was "helping" me take care of it by watering it without my knowledge. I managed to save several stalks and root them in water. But know I don't want to pot them wet and have the new roots rot. Thank you for any advice.

Go ahead and pot them up right away into a small starter pot, approx a 5" pot would be a good size with a drainage hole.
Use a good quality potting mix.
I have listed a link with proper growing information.
