This gorgeous variant of the Mother-in-Law's Tongue houseplant is prized for its beautifully striking silvery-sage foliage that matures to a lovely olive green, while still retaining all the charm of its more common counterpart.

With its dazzling sculptural quality and extremely care-easy nature, the Mother in Law's Tongue has made itself a highly popular house plant worldwide, from being a well-known air purifier to being considered highly indestructible. Ideal for the first time plant parent or someone looking for a low maintenance living sculpture.

The Mother-in-Law's Tongue "Moonshine" will add interest to almost any space in your home, office or patio as they are rather tolerant of a wide variety of conditions and lighting, though, it is best to avoid high humidity as many of these plants come from dry regions. Be sure to give this house plant a little care and watch how well it rewards you with continuous new growth. 

Pair with a planter that is bold and striking for a perfectly balanced natural art piece, or chose an earthy palm leaf basket to soften the edges.

Please note: Sanseveria is considered toxic, so best to keep it out of reach.
