A Guide to Indoor Tropical Plants – Part 4

Sansevieria Bird’s Nest

A smaller cultivar of the well-known Snake Plant. Has a cacti look appearance with very interesting variegation - oval golden leaves with a wide green stripe.

Sansevieria Black Coral

This variety of Snake Plant is the most popular. It has a tall, slender leaf with dark green, almost black coloring and wavy horizontal bands of white-grey-green. Easy care.

Sansevieria Futura Robusta

A hardy snake plant with grayish green, twisted, narrow upright leaves & tinges of silver. A softer, more relaxed appearance than it’s cousin, the Sansevieria ‘Zeylanica’ variety.

Sansevieria Futura Superba

A near indestructible plant with a very strong look. It has green with yellow edged leaves like the Laurentii but the leaf is wider than most of the very hardy Snake Plants.

Sansevieria Laurentii

Another very popular hardy Snake Plant that thrives in almost all conditions. It has strong, beguiling, upright dark green leaves with bright yellow edges can go anywhere.

Sansevieria Sayuri

Very architectural in nature, this super hardy Snake Plant has interesting silvery gray to light green coloured leaves which are contemporary & modern in appearance.

Sansevieria Whale Fin

As the name suggests, the plant is shaped curiously like a whale fin - stiff, erect and large. A unique Snake Plant that can be rare to find, does well planted in Cactus soil.

Sansevieria Yellow Stone

A very low maintenance plant makes this great for beginners. Tolerates low light conditions. Tall & wide leaves are green & white striped centres with yellow edges.

Sansevieria Zeylanica

Another extremely strong succulent Snake Plant with sword-shaped, dark vividly green leaves with gorgeous large white spots. This plant makes a great natural air-purifier.

Spider Plant

A South American prayer plant kept for its clean, designer quality foliage. One of the larger Oribolia, it has bold oval leaves that can grow over a foot across. It can sometimes be a fussy plant.

ZZ Plant

The stems grow in a graceful, wand-like shape that starts thick & bulbous at the base, then tapers to a point. Leaves are shiny, fleshy, ovate shape that gives the plant a feathery effect.

Most house plants have their ‘roots’ in the tropics. They are used to growing under the canopies of tall trees, which explains why many houseplants grow well indoors.

Hanging Baskets

Hanging plants are an excellent way to give your home a garden space that has some height. Adding hanging greenery will brighten any room and also has beneficial air filtering properties. Available in 3 varieties: Spider Plant Hanging Basket Pothos Golden Hanging Basket Ivy Hanging Basket
