  • Position: ideally bright indirect light, but will also tolerate some shade
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow

  • Pot cover: choose a 16cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    The long tapering leaves of this new sansevieria are a subtle blend of silver, grey and green, and they form in a gently splaying cluster which gives them an architectural appeal. They're really easy to look after, so are perfect for the beginner - and they look super-stylish.

    The pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot), but they do make excellent potted plants. If you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

    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.
  • Pets: Harmful if eaten
