Question: I live in Brooklyn, and my snake plant is in a south-facing window. It grows well in the center, but the outer leaves are breaking off. What do I do?
NICK: Snake plants are pretty rugged plants. However, it would be better if the plant did get morning sun as opposed to afternoon sun. Okay, put that all aside, we still have these outer leaves that are falling off. Normally when you have it in a southern window like that, you're thinking oh no, I got to water more. So we end up doing that. That right there is detrimental to the plant. They'll start rotting off and falling out. So ease up on your watering. The second thing is that your older growth will naturally die off on you. Maybe that's what's going on here.
