Snake plant

Asked July 16, 2018, 6:46 PM EDT

The one leaf on my snake plant is wilting and it looks like there is liquid in the actual leaf. Am I watering it too much? Should I clip the wilted leaf?

Sanseviera or Snake Plant or Mother-in-law's Tongue plant has very few if any insect problems. It prefers the soil to dry out before watering, so the leaf in question may indeed be the result of over watering. You can remove the leaf at the base of the plant and allow the soil to dry out before watering.
