Description

Who wouldn’t want a little more luck in their lives!? Snake plants are native to Africa and Madagascar so thrive in warmer conditions and love bright light but will be quite happy in partially shaded areas. They also don’t mind a little neglect so you can enjoy their presence without worrying about them needing too much care. It forms a bundle of erect pointy deep green leaves. When they flower they produce a single spike of small white flowers.

This little guy also has countless health benefits, it’s a great feng shui plant providing helpful energy when needed. It also gets busy while you’re sleeping and absorbs CO2 and other toxins at night which makes it particularly good in the bedroom! Please note the colour and pattern of Sansevieria (Snakey) may vary.

Read our guide about how to look after a Sanseveria.

Please note: As Snake plants are known as rough and ready beauties; splits, markings, tip discoloration and imperfections on the leaves are very normal. The variety of Snakey may vary from the photo. We think all of its different patterns are beautiful!

Plant Care

Don’t be over generous with your watering. Give your Sansevieria 300 ml of water every few weeks. You can let the soil become dry to the touch between watering. Feed with a generic houseplant feed every couple of months. Is happiest in a bright area of full sun but will tolerate partial light conditions indoors.

    Amazing plant. I was waking up every morning feeling drugged (I have 1 yr old). Put one of these in my bedroom last night and felt wide awake this morning despite being up from 2:05 until 3:20 with the little one!

    I ordered four houseplants to bring some life to my home office during lockdown – I am absolutely delighted with each one, they were so carefully packed and arrived with moist soil. They make a wonderful display – thank you so much!

    I ordered this as a gift for a friend and I was so happy with the plant and the beautiful pot it came with. They even hand wrote my message on a postcard for my friend. Beautiful plant and a great gift – will definitely be buying again!

    Very striking plant. The one in the first picture is a Zeylanica and in the other picture the snake plant with the yellow edges is a Laurentii. These are the plants you could receive. They are both great plants. I received the Laurentii and it was in a very healthy condition with no damage or browning to the tips. The plant was very well packaged. Would definitely recommend, great for beginners.

    I now have several plants from Little Botanical and even I can’t seem to kill them – I have never been able to keep plants but these are still going strong!

    I’m not a green fingered person at all but decided recently to branch out from succulents to green house plants. TLB give such straight forward care instructions, and have many easy to look after plants which is just what I needed. I am loving the addition of Snakey to our bedroom – a beautiful plant which brings me joy and I’m managing to keep alive with a bit of watering every couple of weeks.

    Love my little snakey – he sits beautifully on my home-office desk. We’ve renamed him Sharkey as my partner doesn’t like snakes! He was well packaged when delivered and arrived in perfect condition, with clear instructions of how to look after him, and is still alive a month later -which is a big win as I am rubbish with plants normally. I have since recommend Little Botanicla to friends and have used it to be a gift for a friend too. I couldn’t be happier with my little Sharkey!

    A bit disappointed this time, with my plant it had a lot of earth at the bottom of the box and when removing the plant I saw it was leaning to one side. I’m putting it on the window ledge to try and straighten it. All plants my son and I have received before where perfect.

    I am delighted with my Sansevieria (Snakey). It arrived this morning. It’s a very healthy gorgeous looking plant and was well packaged with a lovely pot. My other succulents love their new friend and I cannot wait for many many more.

Why I’m Great

Whilst being put through its paces by the clever people at NASA I am the plant that consistently performs top when removing toxins from the air and helps keep it clear.
