Mother in Law’s Tongue ‘Superba’ 14cm


BOTANICAL NAME_ Sansevieria trifasciata ‘Superba’

AKA_ Mother in Law’s Tongue, MIL, Snake Plant

FEATURES_ An extremely low maintenance succulent perfect for indoors and popular for its architectural, variegated foliage. The superba is slightly more compact, the leaves are a bit fatter and shorter than the more common Sansevieria trifasciata.  Still an upright variety with bladed foliage in shades of green, with mottled or streaked colouring and variegated yellow margins.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ The Snake plant / Mother in Law’s Tongue doesn’t exactly conjure up the warm, fuzzy feelings of gift giving to friends and loved ones. However, it has a worthy place in the home and garden due to its architectural features and indestructibility (if that’s a word). One can only really love it too much (doesn’t like wet feet).  A great housewarming gift, cheeky gift from a MIL to a future daughter in law, tongue in cheek, of course, and you probably can’t go past Mother’s Day for the obvious gift.
