Snake plant

£4.99 £8.99

Sansevieria black coral AKA Snake plant. This native of Nigeria is a tall succulent, reaching up to 90cm (3ft) in height. Its dense, stiff, dark green leaves, grow vertically from a basal rosette. A NASA Clean Air Study found that it can purify the air by removing certain toxins, and releasing oxygen at night, making it particularly beneficial in the bedroom. The plant also has a well-deserved reputation for indestructibility. It contains saponins which are toxic to dogs and cats when ingested.

 

CARE

Sansevieria trifasciata will put up with quite a high level of neglect and a wide spectrum of care, making it a great starter plant. It tolerates bright direct light to moderate shade. It is also quite drought-resistant and can survive extreme temperatures, from a high of 27°C (81°F) down to 5°C (41°F). Prefers free-draining compost, and allow it to dry out between waterings. Water weekly during summer and reduce the frequency in winter. It can go weeks without watering and still survive – it will look very dehydrated and withered but a good watering will make it bounce back.
