In reality, Sansevierias are so robust that they'll grow in almost any potting medium. But if you want to give your snake plant the best environment, a well-draining soil is key. You can use any cacti/succulent mix pre-made, or add sand and small pebbles to amend a standard potting soil. Also make sure the pot has drainage holes - a snake plant hates nothing more than "wet feet." During growing season, feed your snake plant with a balanced fertilizer about once a month. Cease fertilizing all together during winter.
A brightly lit spot without direct sunshine is suggested. A small amount of morning or evening sun is not a problem.
We recommend watering once a week, to 10 days, allowing the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. Over-watering can be an issue with Sansevieria, causing rot. In the winter months, you can go longer in between waterings.
