Sansevieria Zeylanica (also known as Snake Plant or Mother in Law's Tongue) has long sword-like leaves which are dark green with wavy lighter green bands. These bad boys can grow to a metre in height, making them ideal architectural plants.
They are SUPER low maintenance so perfect for a gift. And to top it all all they also are great air purifyers! Yay!
Fancy a lovely pot to put this beauty in? Here is our collection of pots which fit 12cm - 16cm nursery pots. These statuesque plants can look wonderful in a bigger pot so also try our collection of pots which fit 17cm to 23cm nursery pots.
Nursery pot size: 14cm
Height (approx.): 50cm
- Light: Will thrive in almost all light conditions, from shade to direct sun. More is better, but anything at all is fine!
- Watering: Needs very little water. Water when the soil feels dry, about every few weeks. Less in winter.
- Pets: Midly toxic if ingested. Keep out of reach of pets.
Note: All our plants are unique, the plant you receive might not be identical to the one photographed but we're sure you're going to love it either way! They can have rather a rugged, shabby-chic appearance often with rough, brown edges. Some minor leaf cracking is also common - they still look gorgeous anyway...
*Price is for plant in nursery pot only, does not include decorative pot.
