The Mother-in-Law's Tongue (also knows as the snake plant) is a herbaceous, evergreen, mildly toxic flowering plant that is native to Africa and Asia. people mostly use it as an ornamental plant. it thrives well in small pots. This is because in a small space, its rhizomes are crowded and this enables it to grow faster. It's well known for its capacity to purify the air by converting harmful substances into harmless ones.

If growing this Sansevieria indoors, you’ll need a strong pot – a clay pot, for example. this ensures that the roots don’t break it as they grow. it should be wide but not tall, due to the plant’s shallow rooting system and should be perforated for proper drainage. The soil should also be well drained to avoid waterlogging since too much water can rot the plant.

Snake plants require maximum indirect sunlight. you should also keep the plant away from drafts, high winds, and extreme temperatures. They do well with minimal watering, and whilst the soil can be kept dry or slightly moist, don't let it stay wet.

This medium-height variety of Mother-in-law's Tongue is a vibrant green with pale green striations running horizontal across the length of the plant in a mottled pattern. It is similar to the Futura Robusta, however slightly shorter with each plant standing at approximately 30-50cm in height.

This plant comes with either 1-2 established growth points, or 2-3 growth points that are still maturing.
