The plants are not too particular about the type of potting soil they want in their pots. They are even considered weeds in some parts of the world, so they’re quite forgiving. Use any standard good quality potting mix (well-drained, of course), and if you’re really looking for the best of the best, a cactus potting mix would be ideal.
Select a wide pot for this plant. They tend to grow top-heavy, and a narrow pot might tip over if you’re not careful. Ensure the presence of draining holes, and you’re good to go.
Generally, these plants are slow growers and take some time to outgrow their pots. Therefore, be confident that your plant actually needs repotting before getting a fresh pot.
To begin repotting the Snake Plant, remove it from its current pot. In most cases, it’s easy as pie. But sometimes, you might need a small digging tool to get the compact soil loose before pulling out the root ball. Once the plant is out of its pot, gently shake off the soil around the roots and then plant it in a fresh pot about 2 inches wider than the old one. Ensure the presence of drainage holes, and fill it with good quality cactus potting mix.
