This Sansevieria Aubrytiana Metallica is an absolute stunner!
The silvery colour on these leaves give it an almost metalic look. Hence the name.
These plants are over 50cm tall and will add a really sculptural look to any home.
Sanseviera plants are native to Africa, Madagascar and Southern Asia.
They're also known as a Snake Plant and in the 1970s they went by the name of Mother-in-Laws Tongue.
In NASA's 1989 plant study, these guys were a top performer! Snake plants are well known for it air-purifying qualities. They remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene and toluene, and it was even shown that one plant per 100 square foot was enough to efficiently clean the air in a space station. Sansevieria are a great example of how plants can improve the air around you. They're also known as a bedroom plant as they photosynthesis 24 hours a day and can even help you sleep better.
These guys are easy to care for. They will live in the shade or sun, but will only grown and thrive in the sunlight. They're great for houseplant-killers and complete beginners.
They will be slow to grow, so if you're looking for a compact desk plant, then this is a your fella!
They're drought tolerant and only water when dry.
You can leave this guy for several weeks without a drink and it's will forgive you as soon as it has a drink.
But NEVER over water as it will rot the roots.
Delivered in a 12cm plastic pot.
