Buy Sansevieria trifasciata 'Moonshine' mother-in-law's tongue 'Moonshine': Impressive silvery green foliage

  • 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 30cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: choose a 9.5cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    The broad, stiffly upright leaves of this structural house plant are a soft silvery-green, and they also infused with faint horizontal bands. Elegant in its simplicity, it looks great in a contemporary setting - and its incredibly easy to look after! 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.

Notes on Sansevieria trifasciata 'Moonshine'

"One of the top 3 in study by NASA into the best houseplants for clearing formaldehyde from the air often found in the home in fiberboard and plywood. Sanseverias also unlike many house plants give oxygen off at night therefore a great plant to have in the bedroom."

A striking household addition


This was a lovely addition to my collection and my home. The light green pattern is really striking and adds something different to my room. The plant arrived well protected and in good condition - I couldn't recommend this more if you want something easy to care for!
