The Mother-in-Laws Tongue (also known as snake plant) is a species primarily known for its slick sword like long leaves. This is a slow growing plant that anyone can grow because of its low and high sun light tolerance and ease of water.

Best kept in a small to medium pot with very well draining potting mix. Whilst the sansevieria is well suited to very low light, it can also tolerate sun when planted in the garden.

Snake plants do not like to be kept wet at all, hence the need for well draining potting mix. In Summer allow the soil to dry fully between watering and in Winter you will basically ignore the plant and hardly water it.

Pot sizes range from 140mm to 300mm

Prices start from $16
