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.
I love this sassy little plant. Perfect compliment to some more my more leafy plants, love the multi colour tones and textures. AL plants are always so healthy and happy. Thank you!
My Self Watering Pot purchased with a beautiful Mother-In-Laws tongue and it sits beatify on my entertainment unit. Arizona Living potted the plant and delivered the plant the next day to my home and I was super impressed with the quality. I will purchasing again xo
