How to plant Snake Plants in Uganda

If you can buy a seedling snake plant from the nurseries then just go ahead prepare a container and pot it or clear space in the lawn to seat it. 

However, if you can’t access one you also have no worries. 

Identify an already existing snake plant and grab some of its healthy and green leaves for cuttings. 

Am recommending use of leaf cuttings as they are easier to use

Slice the leaf into 5cm segments taking caution on which side was the top and which is the bottom of the cutting. 

Place the cutting in potting soil with the upward side of the cutting facing up, and rooting will be in about 3-4 weeks. 

Place the container in bright and sunny position to facilitate sprouting. 

Like any other new plant, water cautious enough not to soak the soil medium.

About grooming Snake plants

The major grooming routines for a snake plant mainly focus on drainage and pests. 

Make sure that the soils which seat the plant are well draining and also have a pesticide control strategy against mealy bugs and spider mites. 

Less effort is generally needed in bringing up this kind of plant since the snake plant is a very hardy and tolerant plant.
