We are all familiar with the other varieties of Sanseveria but this one we have never seen before!! With striking pale foliage it's a showstopper and must for either the sanseveria collector or novice.
Mother-in-Law's Tongue, 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.
