Sansevieria kirkii 'Friends' - mother-in-law's tongue & pot cover combination

  • Position: ideally bright, with some full sun, but will also tolerate shade
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Pot cover: includes an etched brass pot cover

    One of our new sansevierias, this plant is one of the easiest houseplants to grow, but still looks great. It has sword-shaped, slightly fleshy leaves, which are irregularly mottled, and these form a splayed cluster that also has architectural appeal. Ideal for the novice indoor gardener.

    This combination includes our solid etched brass planter, a modern take on antique Indian vases. Hand finished with a traditional design, it makes a suitably eyecatching companion for the spiky foliage. Pot measures Ø21cm x H16cm.

    Please note: it is quite common for these plants to have small nicks or scars on their leaves. This does not affect their long-term health or vigour in any way.

  • Home care: The main thing to avoid with this plant is overwatering, so only water (avoiding the crown) when the compost gets quite dry. In winter you can cut back even more and only water every month or two and keep temperatures above 10°C. Repot every few years when the roots start to split the pot.
