Plant Bio

Originating in West Africa, the Snake plant is richly symbolic in many cultures across the world. In China, they are often kept near entrances to attract the eight virtues of the gods, whereas in Nigeria the plant is believed to provide spiritual protection.

This special plant also has many nicknames, including ‘bowstring hemp’, ‘St George’s sword’, and (our personal favourite), ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’. Anyone who’s ever been on the receiving end of a sharp comment or two will understand why…!
