(POT SOLD SEPARATELY)
Comes in a plastic 12cm diameter pot and plant is approximately 25-30cm high.
Air cleaning and purifying and made NASA's recommended list in a recent clean air study due to it's natural ability to remove toxins from the environment- such as your apartment or office! Many plants take in oxygen at night, but this one gives it off at night making it perfect addition to your bedroom!
Flexible and happy in varying natural light conditions from full sun to light shade.
Spring and summer months, keep the plant's soil moist, but not wet, about once every 10-14 days. Over winter, allow it to dry out completely before watering moderately- roughly once a month.
mother-in-law's tongue, devil's tongue, jinn's tongue, bow string hemp, snake plant and snake tongue.
Doesn't need repotting until roots have completely filled the pot to the bottom and then it can be divided if you choose and repotted individually.
If ingested, can cause upset stomach among dogs and cats so best to keep it out of their reach. I have mine at my dogs reach, but my dog is a plant lover not a chewer :-)
