How to care for Birds Nest Snake Plants

These plants are non-demanding and low maintenance. They can survive in a fairly dry environment and be kept in full sun, but are also able to adapt to low light levels. They require sandy, well drained substrate which should be allowed to dry out completely before watering.

They can be fed using a terrarium safe biofertiliser such as Superworm Frass. Use a full spectrum plant growth LED to aid colour and growth.
