    The tall foliage of the snake plant can make it top-heavy, so it's usually grown in pots that are wider than they are deep. When selecting a new pot, choose one 1 to 2 inches larger in diameter than the old container. The pot must have at least one bottom drainage hole so excess water can drain well after watering. Fill the pot about one-third full with a soil-based potting media or a potting soil formulated for tropical houseplants.

    Although snake plants can normally tolerate some direct sun, placing the pot in an area with only bright and indirect light for two or three weeks after repotting helps the plant recover from any transplant stress. Allow the roots to reestablish for at least one month before applying any type of fertilizer, otherwise, the fertilizer may burn the roots. Water the snake plant when the top 1 inch of soil feels dry and empty any collected water from the drip tray beneath the pot promptly so the soil doesn't become waterlogged. Overly wet soil can cause root rot or lead to fungal problems on recently cut or damaged roots.

    Make sure the pot has good drainage. When you water, let it drain into the sink. Water once a month. If it is a new plant, water more frequently the first month or so.
