Propagating snake plant

Can snake plants be started from cuttings?

Snake plant can be started several ways. Perhaps the simplest method is to divide older plants. Snake plants, or mother-in-law tongue, as it is known by some, produces underground rhizomes that increase the size of the clump of upright shoots. Division is a way to get a large new plant quickly. This is the only way to maintain the marginal light green stripe of variegated types.

If your snake plant is not variegated, and if you’re patient, you can start new plants by taking stem cuttings. Cut the snake plant leaves into 3-4 inch long segments, cutting a notch in the upper end of each so you can tell which end is up. Its important to mark which side is up on each cutting, because the cuttings will fail to root and grow if inserted in the rooting medium upside down. Dip the lower end of the cutting in soil with rooting mix to help start off your new snake plant growth. Remember to keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet, because snake plants can rot if kept in excessively wet soil. In several months you should see new shoots developing from the base of the cutting.
