Pots For Snake Plants: A Sanseveria Pot Shopping Guide

Snake Plants are one of the most popular and top three houseplants searched on our website. We hope this selection of pots for Snake Plants we’ve picked out is helpful and makes your shopping easier.

We love the look of Snake Plants in terra cotta and clay pots. It’s a match made in heaven. That being said, they’re not fussy when it comes to pot material. The best choice of pot for yours is the one that suits your fancy and is the appropriate size for the plant.

All of ours are growing in nursery pots placed inside decorative pots like the ones you see below. This makes it much easier when it comes time for repotting.

The best time for repotting is during the growing season, spring through early fall. You want to make sure the potting soil has proper drainage and aeration to ensure healthy root growth. If you’re directly planting your Snake Plant in a decorative pot, make sure it has drainage holes on the bottom so the water can easily flow out.

In regards to Snake Plant pot size, bigger is not better. Snake Plants like to grow somewhat tight in their pots. If yours is growing in a 4″ nursery pot, then repotting into a 6″ pot size would be best. A 6-8″ decorative pot would be what you want unless it narrows significantly at the top and/or bottom.

We’ve done lots of care, repotting, and propagation posts on the beloved Snake Plant. You’ll find them scattered throughout this post. Now, let the shopping begin!
