Snake plants need bright and indirect light and can handle a bit of direct light. Placing them in a room with larger, east- or west-facing windows which let in a lot of natural light is ideal as long as the sun doesn’t hit them directly for long. And remember that a lot of windows in a room can actually act as a greenhouse, heating up the sunlight as it bounces back onto the windows, so adjust the temperature of your home accordingly or invest in some blinds where the light can be diffused. However, heat is not normally a problem for these plants, and you yourself would be uncomfortable far before the heat would start to have an affect on your plant.
Above 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 Celsius) is ideal. As they are native to South Africa, these plants can withstand a good amount of heat, but they do not do well in cold. Make sure your windows are fully sealed; old homes and apartments can sometimes have tiny cracks in the molding or the windows do not shut completely. If this is the case you should not place your plant by the window in the winter.
Their leaves are prone to collect dust due to the size and texture. Use a water-based wipe to dust your plant. If your home or apartment is older you may get a lot of dust from the plaster itself, in which case you would need to dust your plant more frequently.
