'Fan' Snake Plant | Sansevieria Zeylanica | 14cm Pot | By Plant Theory

Instantly recognisable, the Sansevieria is one of the most popular indoor plants. They are easy to care for and a top choice for beginners. Blessed with many nicknames like snake plant, St George's sword, mother-in-laws tongue or bow string hemp, there are many variations in shape and colour to capture your interest. The Zeylanica variety is a dark green with distinctive bars running across the sword shaped leaves which grow in a tight clump. Happy growing in a variety of light conditions, they only require a little watering and are proven by NASA as one of the best air-purifying plants around. As an introduction to indoor plants, the sansevieria is your best buy.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).

Advice on hot and droopy plants

If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.

Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
