How I Control the Size of my Snake Plants
Snake plants are a great house plant, even if you don't have a green thumb!
Different varieties will grow to different sizes, but if you want a little more control, there are some easy steps you can take.
If you would like your snake plant to grow faster, provide it with more sunlight.
If you want to stop your snake plant from growing any taller, simply snip off the tips of the leaves.
This will cause the sansevieria to stop releasing the hormone that tells it to grow upwards.
To limit outward growth, limit the size of the pot.
This will prevent new leaves from growing away from the base of the plant.
Curbing the growth in both directions may even promote blooming.
If you would like to remove unwanted growth from a snake plant, you can simply divide it.
Dividing a snake plant at the rhizome allows you to create 2 plants from 1.
