Hi there,

I'm new to snake plants (african spear?). This is my first one. I have it in my office. "Adopted" it from a friend that has left the company.

When I got it, I repotted it. And it seemed to be doing "well" for awhile. It is sitting on top of my file cabinet. It gets mostly flouresent light. But there is natural light streaming in.


A coule of months ago, the leaves/stems dropped and it is now starting to "crawl". Here is link to pictures.

The dropped leaves I'm thinking were due to overwatering. I've cut back on that. But I'm not too sure about its crawling.

I didn't think these plants crawled?

Any ideas on how to make it be healthy again?

Hi, Pam. Your picture link did not work for me. But the only time mine have 'traveled' was to seek a better lighting situation. But I plant mine outdoors in the ground.
Here is a link to basic care of your snake plant.
Good luck!
