|My Wilting Mother-in-Law Tongue Plant|
Help I’m Wilting and I can’t get up….…this was the cry from my snake plant ( good luck plant, mother-in-law's-tongue, devil's tongue, Sansevieria). I have had this plant for several years. I had just pulled it inside from a glorious summer al fresco, and split it into two large pots. It seemed fine for a few months. Then it started wilting, and a wilting houseplant is a cry for help.
Sansevieria is a strong plant, it’s in office spaces and given to people who can kill just about anything else. So I was perplexed as to what was going on and consulted every source I could find on-line and a solution. Here is what I learned:1) Know what “healthy” looks like for your plant
2) Know what about your situation is unique. Take into consideration the environment that your plant is in (Potting soil, container size, lighting, heat, drafts.
3) Understand the causes of wilting for the plant in question
4) Experiment and learn to listen to what your plant is telling you – what other people tell you to do may not work for you.
