Snake plant delivery

The snake plant, their sharp long leaves resemble snakes, giving the plant its name. Snake plants are popular gifts owing to their striking features, and because of their low maintenance. Snake plants don't need much water, although you will need to wipe the leaves occasionally, to prevent dust building up. Make sure to feed a snake plant with plant food once a month.

Snake plant delivery questions

Do Floom offer same-day delivery?

We offer same-day delivery on selected products in most areas when you order before 1 pm and next day delivery when you order before 12 pm.

How do I make my plants last longer?

Know what is best for your plant. A cactus thrives under bright light while zamioculcas can live with low light if they have to.

How do I extend the life of my plants?

All plants benefit from some pointing-and-spraying, but indoor plants like it most, especially those that require humidity in addition to water – ferns and calatheas among them.

What time will my flowers be delivered?

Our main delivery window is 10am - 6pm Monday - Sunday. Some of our florists do deliver later into the day in which case any same day orders placed after 1pm will be delivered before 9pm that day.
