These Sansevieria (or Mother-in-Law’s tongue) plants are native to Africa and offer countless health benefits. It also provides great feng shui, exuding helpful energy when needed. It gets busy while you’re sleeping and absorbs CO2 and other toxins at night which makes it particularly good in the bedroom! These spiky, dark green plants will compliment any room of your home and provide a real statement plant with texture and colour.

Please note: As these plants are known as rough and ready beauties; markings, tip discoloration and imperfections on the spikes are very normal.

    This is such an unusual plant which looks great on my windowsill. You can tell it’s packaged for transit with real care and looks exactly like the photos straight out of the box. Another Great buy from The Little Botanical

Why I’m Great

I can improve your life! Whilst you are relaxing at home I will be busy taking no less than Formaldehyde, xylene, toluene and nitrogen oxides. One of me should help keep the air in a 10 square meter room crystal clear!
