You can also propagate snake plants through leaf cuttings. Just cut 2 to 3-inch pieces of a leaf and place them about 1 inch deep in soil appropriate for snake plants. Make sure to plant cuttings facing up, the same direction they were growing.
Sunlight: Sansevieria prefers bright light with some sun. They can adapt to full sun.
Soil: A loose, well-drained potting mix.Sandier soil is good for them.
