We love this eye-catching succulent for its looks and its ability to clean the air! There are about 70 varieties of Sansevieria, known as ‘snake plants’ because of the shape of their leaves. Native to tropical West Africa from Nigeria east to the Congo. It is most commonly known as the snake plant, mother-in-law's tongue, Saint George's sword and viper's bowstring hemp, among other names. 

Sansevieria Trifasciata is a large houseplant known for its ability to purify the air. It is very good at absorbing toxins such as nitrogen oxides and improving indoor air quality.

It is also a very easy-care houseplant, requiring little maintenance and it’s happy to sit in a spot with either bright light or low light. It has long, stiff, vertical leaves and is a stylish plant with a sculptural look.

Sansevieria Trifasciata, or snake plants, were named ‘Office plant of the year’ in 2020 by a panel of judges focusing on plants for mental health, so if you’re looking for something to brighten up your home office, make you feel good and purify the air - and you’re wondering where to buy your snake plant - then you need look no further!

If someone is lucky enough to be receiving this houseplant as a gift, we can enclose a free, handwritten card with the delivery. We won’t include any paperwork either!


The etched pattern on these striking black Tembesi Planters is crafted by hand. The contrast of black exterior and warm antique brass interior creates an eye-catching effect and a stylish backdrop for plants.

Dimensions 25cm x 30cm x 30cm (H x W x D)
