Sansevieria – Snake Plant

(2 customer reviews)


Sansevieria trifasciata / Mother in Laws Tongue

Indestructible, just like a mother in laws tongue! (unless you’re lucky enough to have a lovely mother in law like myself!) this is the perfect plant for all you serial plant killers. It also looks pretty cool. The snake plant is an uncommon and weirdly wonderful species – bullet proof, air purifying, gorgeous.

Put your snake plant wherever you like. If you pop her in brighter light (not direct sunlight) she will grow a lot faster. She will adapt just fine to low light conditions. 


Thriving on neglect let the soil go quite dry before watering. 


elk + forrest love a good misting but your snake plant won’t thank you for it. Just leave her be. She’s got this. 


Happy to sit in most temperatures, just try not to let her get too cold for long periods. Above 13 degrees and she’ll be sweet. 


Your snake plant will be fine without supplemental feeding but if you wish you can feed her cactus or general purpose feed once a month in the summer months. 


Don’t eat your snake plant. She is toxic. If you have an especially curious nibbler at home perhaps one of our pet safe plants will serve you better.

HELP! There’s something wrong with my mother in law! (we can’t help you there I’m afraid) 

There’s something wrong with my Snake plant.  

soggy, brown roots. You’ve over-watered this gal – she’s got root rot. You need to re-pot her. Pop an email to and we can help you out. And step away from the watering can.

Scarring on the leaves, or yellowing, mushy leaves. This probably means that she’s been exposed to extreme temperatures at some point. Prune her very damaged leaves but keep as much of the healthy plant as you can. You don’t want to freak her out even more!
