    Mottled grey-green snake-like markings weave their way across long sword-like leaves. This award-winning houseplant has striking creamy-yellow margins. These robust plants can have a slightly weather-beaten appearance, sometimes with rough, brown edges and occasionally some minor leaf cracking can be seen. This does not affect the long-term health or vigour of the plant and simply adds to its charm!

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Allow the soil to dry out completely before watering. Water thoroughly and allow to drain freely. Do not allow the plant to sit in water as this will cause root rot. In winter, reduce the frequency of watering and keep temperatures above 10°C. Repot every few years when the roots start to out-grow the pot.
  • Pets: Harmful if eaten
