If you've walked into a Scandi interior shop lately you’ve probably seen a Sansevieria trifasciata. These cool snake patterned guys have been trending for a while and we can easily see why. They look great next to natural materials like wood and concrete. The long green complements the minimalistic style so well that our shopping finger can’t help but twitch.
Apart from being Scandi trendsetters, they're pretty much unkillable. They are basically best ignored as the easiest way to kill them is to water them too much - don't give them a drink until the soil is completely dry. In the winter, you barely need to water them at all but do ensure they stay warm - they like being in temperatures above 10°C.
When the roots threaten to split the pot, the mother-in-laws-tongue will need a bigger pot to live in.
