Mother-in-Law’s Tongue

Sansevieria trifasciata

Sometimes also called snake plant or viper’s bow string hemp, the Mother-in-Law’s Tongue is great for those who aren’t too confident with plants. They prefer lots of sunlight and warmth but can live well where light conditions aren’t so great. Let the soil dry between watering, and in winter reduce to monthly watering. Err on the side of under-watering. Fertilising isn’t necessary, but if you want to, do so with a diluted nitrogen-free fertiliser during the growing season between spring and summer.
