Indestructible variety for the home! This plant originates from South Africa where they grow in harsh environments and can cope with lack of water with ease. This means you only need to water lightly once every couple of days for your plant to thrive.
Thick leathery grey green erect stems growing from the base look like pencils in a pencil pot and will grow easily in shade or light rooms. Try a couple in your bedroom where you can rest assured knowing that they naturally remove harmful particles in the air whilst you sleep.
As your mother in law’s tongue plant grows it removes harmful chemicals from the air and releases fresh oxygen for us to breath- an excellent and natural way to keep you and the family healthy in the home.
Keep plants in cool rooms and if given full light they will sometimes send out pink-budded white flowers for an extra dimension to these already impactful plants.
How your plants arrive to you
Supplied in a 10.5cm plastic pot with the plant being approximately 12-16in (30-40cm) in overall height. Your pot arrives to you surrounded by a plastic film which keeps your soil humid for an excellent root environment which is good news for your mother in law’s tongue plant while in transit from our nursery to your home.

Can’t plant straight away?
