PottingWateringLighting
POTTING DETAILS:

Needs a we/I-drained potting mix and a pat with hole. An ideal potting mix is 1/3rd Perlite, 1/3rd Vermiculite and 1/3rd Coca Peat.Alternatively, one can use equal mix of garden soil, sand, and manure or vermicompast. Add a little bit of Fungicide or Neem KhaIi. The pot of the plant should be changed ta the next higher size when it becomes root bound i.e. when roots of the plant fill the pot.

Watering Details:

Plant soil should be kept moist at all times. Be careful to avoid overwatering. Do not allow plants to stand in water. Avoid wetting plant leaves excessively. A spray of water should help in the case of flowering plants. Water should be given only when the top 2 inches become dry, i.e. once every 2-3 days in summers and once every 7 days in winters.Watering frequency should be increased in case itis kept outside in shade.
Lightening Requirements :

Keep plants in medium-light locations, out of direct sunlight. Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 18 2s•q
PROPAGATIONFERTILIZATIONGENERAL TIPS
Plant Reproduction Details:

Snake plant can be propagated by just cutting a leaf 2/3rd in size and potting in a we/I-drained potting mix. As the plant is kept in the pot new leaves appear.Within2-3 months, new small plants grow automatically on the sides. They can be uprooted and repotted to make new plants. 
Fertilization Details:

For snake plant less is better, while it requires more nitrogen. Use any NPK fertilizer, with more Nitrogen than other elements and give only half the recommended dosage. Use fertilizer during warm weather, when it needs the extra nutrients the most. No need to fertilize in the winter and fall because snake plants don't need the extra nutrients in cold weather.
General Information & Tips:

Remove waste leaves and stems from time to time. If the leaves droop, then it means under watenng. If only one or two leaves droop then it's a light problem. The plant exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide using the crassulacean acid metabolism process, which is only present in a small number of plant species. It allows them to withstand drought. The microscopic pores on the plant's leaves called the stomata are used to exchange gases. They open only at night to prevent water from escaping via evaporation in the hot sun. As a result, stored oxygen is released at the opening of the stomata at night, unlike most plants which continuously exchange gases during the day.
