The Easiest House Plant
Why Black Gold Snake Plants?
The Black Gold Snake Plant is effortless to grow. It requires little water, thrives on neglect, and will stand strong in rooms with low light. Often considered a bullet-proof plant, this hard-to-kill evergreen will make a bold statement with its exotic, lush look.
In fact, its upright leaves are long and sword-like, with some reaching 2 to 3 feet, with color banding all the way to the tip. Its deep green (almost black) leaves are outlined in bright lime green, creating a terrific contrast of color. The Black Gold snake plant stands tall like a modern work of art, making it a favorite for decades in interior design.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great service and beautiful plant
The plant is doing great and shipping was well wrapped
Nestled in an ready to grow
I love snake plants. This plant arrived quickly and in great health. It is now in our dining room beneath a skylight and clearly stable.
Settled into its home. Doing well in moderate light from east and west lightly shaded windows. Seems a sturdy specimen.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Ensure you select a location with bright, indirect light - placing your Black Gold Snake Plant in front of a sunny window is ideal.
The Black Gold Snake Plant can go years without requiring repotting. It often thrives in a root-bound situation. But if you're re-planting, choose a pot that is twice as large as the Sansevieria plant’s root ball. Pick a pot that has drainage holes as well. When you're ready to plant, place three inches of general-purpose potting soil into the bottom of the pot, set the plant’s root ball on top of the soil and add potting soil around the plant’s roots. Gently press the soil down around the plant’s roots to remove all air pockets. Water the newly potted plant thoroughly after planting.
2. Watering: After planting, keep the soil slightly dampened around the Black Gold Snake Plant’s roots but not overly saturated for the first year after planting. During the dry season, water the plant at least once per week. Once established, it has the ability to survive even an extended drought.
Generally, you should allow the soil in the pot to dry out between waterings.
3. Fertilizing: Use a half-diluted, general all-purpose fertilizer for house plants. Fertilize once every three weeks throughout the summer.
