Sanseveria trifasciata - Yellow Snake Plant / Mother in Law's Tongue (S)
Sansevieria, known as the 'Snake Plant' or 'Mother-in-law's Tongue' is a classic and elegant house plant, here in a unique silvery colour variation. It's robust, thick leaves sprout vertically, with a defiant architectural quality. It has a reputation as a drought tolerant, slow growing plant, but with care it will flourish and reward you with bursts of growth. With it's elongated leaves featuring an attractive subtle mottled pattern in a shade unique to 'Moonshine', it's family members come in a number of colour variations. The distinctive spikes of Sansevieria form an attractive living sculpture for any space.
This plant will tolerate low light conditions, however bright indirect sunlight will allow it to thrive. The pigmentation on the leaves will become duller if it is located away from sunlight, and when taller, the leaves may flop. This can be fixed by moving it back into the light. In perfect conditions, your Sansevieria may occasionally sprout it's fragrant white flowers - a rare delight! Watering is only required when the soil is completely dry; do not overdo it as the roots can rot.
