Black Coral Snake Plants are from the plant family Asparagaceae. The plant is commonly named mother-in-law's tongue and viper's bowstring hemp. It's nicknamed the “viper’s bowstring hemp” since the plant fibers were once used to make bowstrings. Black Coral snake plant is a semi-tropical plant native to West Africa. It spreads by rhizomes that can grow below ground or just above the soil surface. The plant has been found to be effective in removing environmental toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene. This plant makes an excellent houseplant and thrives in low-light conditions.

Cold Climate Considerations:
For those residing in colder climates with freezing temperatures, we recommend adding a "UniHeat 72-Hour Heat Pack" to your order. This ensures the safe journey of your plant, even in chilly weather. Visit our shop to include this option with your order at Checkout. If a heat pack is not included for colder climates, we cannot guarantee that the plant will arrive alive in below-freezing Winter weather.

WATER: Use well-draining soil and allow to dry between waterings. We recommend watering more frequently during the summer months, and less during the winter months.


🌿 Propagation Tips for Plant Cuttings -

***For all Snake Plants, we recommend cutting the leaves into a v shape. This allows roots to spread and is recommended for optimal growth in propagation.

Dirt Propagation: Place the cuttings on top of dirt or stick the stems directly into the soil. Petals can also be propagated and laid directly on the soil. Any roots that form can be gently planted into the dirt.

Water Propagation: Place the cutting root end down into a clear glass of filtered water, removing petals near the root end. Change out the water every 3-5 days with fresh water to avoid root decay. Plant once roots are well established.

🌱 New cuttings will need bright light but not direct sunlight. We recommend dipping the end of the stem into rooting hormone, as this helps many cuttings root more quickly.
