Few houseplants are as popular and well-known as snake plants. They are notorious for being hardy, low-maintenance, and stylish and can often be spotted in offices, lobbies, stores, and homes alike. Some of the most common and recognizable types of snake plants include the standard Dracaena trifasciata along with varieties like the Dracaena trifasciata ‘Laurentii’, but the moonshine snake plant (Dracaena trifasciata ‘Moonshine’) is a lesser known variety that has been steadily gaining popularity. This striking snake plant has an upright growth habit with thin, broad leaves that are a pale silvery green in color. Like its relatives, it is easy to grow and care for indoors making it perfect for beginners and houseplant experts alike. Before adding this beautiful plant to your home, parents and pet owners should be aware that it is considered mildly toxic to pets and humans if ingested1 so take caution if you have children or furry friends at home.

Light: Snake plants do well in a range of lighting conditions, from low light to direct sun (if properly acclimated). That being said, when grown indoors the moonshine snake plant grows best with bright to medium indirect light. If necessary, it can also survive in low light conditions although it’s important to know that it will not grow as quickly and may develop leggy growth over time. 

Watering: Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings. The moonshine snake plant is drought-tolerant and susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Keep in mind that the amount of water this plant needs correlates directly with the amount of light it gets. If your moonshine snake plant receives several hours of bright, indirect light it will need to be watered more frequently than if it were growing in low-light conditions. Watering also depends on the temperature and humidity the plant is exposed to. For this reason, testing the soil moisture with your finger or a moisture meter between waterings is the most reliable way to determine if your plant is ready to be watered, versus trying to stick to a regular watering schedule. When in doubt, it is always best to underwater a snake plant rather than overwater it.
