How to Propagate Snake Plant

Snake plants can be easily propagated to create new plants for yourself or a friend.

Step 1: Take a Leaf Cutting

Use sharp clean clippers to cut a healthy leaf right at the soil line. Since snake plants don’t grow from stems or vines like other houseplants, you don’t have to worry about finding the right “node” for your cut. Consider cutting a V-shaped notch in the bottom to expose more surface area for the roots to grow.

Step 2: Spread the Clippings in Water

Fill a clean cup, vase or vessel with at least 2″ of water. Stick your cut leaf inside and place it in a partially sunny spot, such as a windowsill. You can also place several clippings in a vase to create an attractive arrangement. Refresh the water every 1-2 weeks.

Step 3: Once Rooted, Transfer to Soil

Once your clipping has grown roots at least 1″ long, it can be transferred to a pot with soil. This may take several weeks. Remember to use loose soil for best drainage. Cactus, palm, or succulent soil mix is ​​best.

Once your cuttings are potted, care for your new snake plant the same way you would a mature plant.
