How to Propagate Sansevieria trifasciata “Snake Plant”
Propagating “Snake Plant” is almost as easy as it is to grow! It is one succulent that does well with water propagation.
Remove a healthy leaf from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing in well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
Using sharp, sterile scissors, remove a healthy leaf from the main plant, and place it in a tall container. Fill the container with just enough water to cover the leaf several inches. Place in indirect light, changing the water every several days.
Sansevieria grow from a large root-like organ called a rhizome. This forms a large mass under the soil, where the leaves grow up from. The rhizome can be carefully divided using very sharp scissors or a garden saw.
Be sure the section removed has at least one healthy leaf growing from the rhizome. Allow it to dry for a day, then replant in well-draining soil. Wait to water until several days after planting.
