Sansevieria, likely one of the first house plants you’ll encounter in people’s windowless bathrooms, is native to the deserts of Africa and Southern Asia. There are around 70 species of Sansevieria, also commonly known as “mother-in-law’s tongue” or “snake plant” due to their shape, margin of its leaves, resilience, and their ability to make you feel like a terrible plant child when you neglect them, don’t call them, or forget to water them. They’re also one of the few plants that release oxygen at night rather than in the day – so maybe keep one on your nightstand instead of your aromatherapy essential oils.
Sansevierias make for the perfect gift for those with no plant experience – they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. FYI – the ones seen in the market are often the trifasciata species because they grow much faster compared to their non-commercially grown species. So, if you’re on a mission to catch all 70 of ‘em like you do Pokémon, then you’re in for a real treat – just look both ways before crossing the street, thx!
i've been looking for moonshine for a while since it's not readily available everywhere! the 4 inch moonshine i got was in great shape and i can't wait for it to slowly grow. Perfect size for top of a nursery dresser or bedroom bedside. thank you, Chive team!
I bought this beautiful plant at Chive and it is thriving, thanks to the care instructions given. I purchased a few other plants and several of their beautiful pots which have added colour and warmth to my home. Definitely recommend purchasing Chive products!
