About Susie

Our Susie originally heralds from central Africa and, ever since, has gathered a whole host of rich nicknames, including "Snake plant", "Viper's Bowstring hemp". "Saint George's Sword" and "Mother-in-law's tongue". She is truly the beginner's houseplant, but that's not to say she's boring. Her magical benefits include, so say some, being able to help you sleep better.

Details

Our Susies come in three different sizes:
Height: 20-40cm: Pot width: 12cm
Height: 50-60cm; Pot width: 17cm
Height: 70-80cm; Pot width: 23cm

Kept in its current pot, she shouldn't grow much more than 20cm taller. This growth will be directly upwards so it's a good one for narrow spaces.

Likes

Happy in almost any light condition, but she'll grow best if in bright light.

Dislikes

This plant is practically indestructible, unless it has been overwatered.

Health benefits

NASA recommended this plant in its famous clean air study for its natural capacity to remove toxins from its immediate environment. And, while most plants take away oxygen at night, this one gives it off during night hours, making it perfect for the bedroom.

Watering and feeding

During spring and summer months, keep the plant's soil moist, but not wet, about once every 10-14 days. Over winter, allow it to dry out completely before watering moderately. As a general rule, this means once a month or so.

Living with pets and children

If ingested, can cause upset stomach among dogs and cats so best to keep it out of their reach
