Why is my snake plant not growing straight?
Similarly, you may ask, how do you encourage a snake plant to grow?
Allow soil to dry between waterings and take extra special care not to over water in winter. Try to avoid getting leaves wet when you water. Place your snake plants in indirect light (although they are tolerant of a variety of light conditions) and fertilize during the growing season with an all-purpose plant food.
Beside above, when should I repot my snake plant? The best time to do this repotting is in the late winter or very early spring. This puts the transplant during the time of year that the plant's not in active growth mode. But if needed, it can be performed at any time of year. You'll know it's time when roots start creeping through the drainage holes of your pot.
In this regard, why is my snake plant drying out?
Wilted leaves on snake plants can come from two things: too much water or not enough. You need to check how dry the soil is to help diagnose the problem. Stick your finger down through the soil in the pot. Watering this area causes rot which, in turn could cause the leaves to wilt and flop over.
Can I cut the leaves of my snake plant?
Use a thin knife to cut the individual leaves away, being careful not to damage adjacent leaves. Remove all the leaves that you think are too tall. The smaller, younger leaves will continue to grow and preserve the character of the plant. If you want to grow additional plants, use the pruned leaves to start new ones.
