Surely one of the most useful houseplants, the diehard snake plant (Sansevieria) is certainly in our top three favourites.
This less-common form of the familiar Mother-in-laws tongue has exquisitely patterned, wavy, blue-green leaves edged with silver and grows with a softly spready habit. Perfect to keep on a bedside table!
Many gardeners have known for years that Sansevieria is a great plant for the bedroom, helping you to get a good, restful night's sleep, and now we know why. Research by NASA has shown that one of their most useful features is their ability to keep the air inside your home clean, removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene, and giving out valuable oxygen at night.
A plant that's really easy to care for and maintain, Sanseveiria is ideal for those of us who are short of time or tend to forget about looking after houseplants. Tolerant of neglect, they can go for weeks being ignored or forgotten, yet their strappy leaves still manage to look fresh and vibrant.
An ideal houseplant, the snake plant can survive in poor light, with little water, able to go extended periods without a drop, and is resilient to pest assault!
Growing to around 20cm x 30cm and supplied as an established plant in an 11cm pot.
