How fast does a snake plant grow?

From the popular Mother- in-law’s Tongue to the Bowstring Hemps, these slow-growing plants are some of the most popular houseplants.

Believe it or not, snake plants are a family of  desert hardy plants.

In the wild, they store water in a thick underground root called a rhizome, allowing them to survive in drought.

They do well in low-light growing conditions, making them perfect  as indoor plants.

The slow growth rate of snake plants means you don’t have to prune or move into larger pots every six months.

With enough water and a bit of bright, indirect sunlight, they’ll keep producing healthy new growth in their time.

Snake plants are, as a group, quite slow growers.

But with the right type of snake plant and proper care, they can grow a foot or two in a year.
