Care Guide: Gold Flame Snake Plant


For your Sansevieria Gold Flame to photosynthesize well and keep its water use in good balance, it will need to grow in bright indirect light, but out of the direct sun’s rays that can burn the leaves.


Snake plants were originally native to tropical West Africa and have naturalized in other hot, dry environments such as Madagascar, India, and Indonesia. They are comfortable in 60 to 90 degrees F, which are well within average household and office temperatures.
