INDOOR PLANT or OUTDOOR PLANT - Mother In Law's Tongue in Small & Medium pot sizes

We are all probably familiar with the image and the name of this plant...'Mother-in-Law's Tongue'... due to it's huge popularity as a houseplant.

Mother-in-Law's Tongue, Sansevieria Trifasciata , also known as a snake plant, originates from West Africa but was first cultivated and kept as treasured houseplants in China because it was believed the eight gods bestowed their virtues (long life, prosperity, intelligence, beauty, art, poetry, health, and strength) upon those who grew the plant!  

Now-days, in Australia it is ever so popular as it is fiercely hardy and nearly indestructible! It features stiff leaves that range from 10-15 cm's to 2 meters tall, depending on the variety. Mother-in-Law's Tongue plants vary in colour, most commonly they are green inside the stem and feature a yellow border. 

Due to how hardy and easy they are to look after a Mother-in-Law's Tongue is a perfect 'beginner' plant, a great gift for someone who is starting out on their plant journey, or a great option for an office, business or holiday home.

LIGHT
Mother-in Law's Tongue plants can be very adaptable to where they are placed. Their happy place will be an area with bright natural light however they can tolerate lower light or full sun conditions. Can tolerate being outdoors in a sheltered warm location. 

WATER 
Let the soil dry out between waterings. During winter, reduce watering to monthly, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch. If choosing to over-water or under-water this plant always choose to under-water ... to much water can lead to your plant rotting. 
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
The small and medium Mother-in-Law's Tongue are sold in 10cm plastic growers pot. Ideally increase your pot size by 5 - 7 cm to allow more room for your plant to grow. A 17cm Mr Kitly Self-Watering pot would be a great option for a beginner as they are super easy pots to manage. If ceramic is more your vibe a small sized Finch pot would be a lovely choice to continue to elevate the long stems of this beloved plant.
** Please note all of our plants are hand selected for their quality and health. The Mother-in-Law's Tongue you receive may not be the exact one pictured but it will be of equal quality.
