mother-in-law's tongue 'Silver Flame'

12cm pot - 42cm tall £22.99
  • Position: ideally bright indirect, but will also tolerate some shade
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 42cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: choose a 14cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from. Also, it is quite common for the leaves to have small nicks or scars on them, but this won't affect the plants growth.

  • Home care: The main thing to avoid with this plant is over-watering, 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.
