Plant Description

The Sansevieria plant, also known as the snake plant or “mother-in-law's tongue” plant, this unique indoor greenery is a striking statement piece. Perhaps the only thing better than how good it looks is how easy it is to care for. You’ll have no problem caring for the Sansevieria, even if this is your first plant and you don’t have much time or energy to dedicate to the plant. It’s a balanced piece that gives you many benefits while still being beautiful.

Some of the Sansevieria’s most distinct characteristics are:

  • Large, thick leaves with a leathery texture
  • The leaves range between yellow, light green and dark green
  • Almost impossible to kill, making this incredibly easy to grow and keep alive
  • Adds complexity and texture to any area due to how their leaves look

Plants and pots are sold separately 



Plant Delivery & Shipping

Bloomspace delivers to NSW, VIC, QLD, ACT, and SA. Some extra large plants and orders can only be delivered to the Sydney Metro area. All plants are carefully packed with custom packaging techniques to ensure your plant arrives in perfect condition. We have negotiated heavily discounted shipping rates with several courier services. Please select your preferred shipping company and option at the checkout page.

The majority of our orders (if ordered on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday) are received in 1-2 days for all capital cities. We do not send plants on Thursday and Friday, to ensure the plants aren't sitting in a box unnecessarily. Please get in touch with us if you are in Sydney and require urgent delivery later in the week, as this can be arranged upon request.

Do the pots featured in the photographs come with the plants?

No, not all of them. The majority of our plants come in a standard grower's pot like what you would get from a nursery. Any plant that comes with a matching pot will have "with planter" in the product title and description. 

Are your plants real?

YES! We only sell real living plants.

Do you really offer a money back guarantee?

YES! We stand by our plants 100%. If there's a mistake or something doesn't quite work out with an order, we will do our best to fix it, we won't quibble, and if we can't fix it, we will return your money. If there's any thing wrong with the plant or pot upon delivery, take some pictures once you receive it, send them through to, and we'll sort it in no time!

Are your plants and pots sent at the same time?

This can vary depending on the size of the plant and pot, and where you are located. It is always safer for both of them to be sent separately, so that is our preference unless the order is close to Sydney Metro area.

Healthy happy plants on arrival very well considered for transport :-)

Healthy plant

Great shipping, healthy plant!

Not the best plant i have ordered through bloomspace

Firstly, I highly rate, the speed and quality of delivery, the quality of the plants has always been top-notch. Unfortunately, this one plant was not overly impressive, i suspect it may have been close to the last one in stock. It had a total of only 5 leaves, and for the price, a much fuller plant could be obtained from bunnings. I have purchased quite a few plants from Bloomspace, and this is an anomaly, as I fully recommend them!

Snake plant

Healthy huge plant, packed carefully. Would order again


My review yesterday has disappeared from the website, probable because I did not give a 5* rating. It appears that Bloomspace only want perfect reviews.
I did say that the plant was nice but toxic to cats, dogs and horses, found after my daughters's cat became violently sick after contact with the plant.
I have had to resort to placing a review because Bloomspace will not respond to any emails regarding my complaint that I would not have purchased the plant had it been made clear in the description of the plant that it was toxic to cats, instead of "pet friendly".
I would call them except I live in the UK and the time difference/cost makes it impractical, as does the live chat function.
If they feel my complaint is unjustified perhaps they would be kind enough to respond to my previous emails to explain that, rather than ignoring me completely. The plant cost a lot of money and was a housewarming present for my daughter.

Hi Lorna, We're very sorry to hear about your cat :(. We sincerely hope it is OK. In regards to your review, we clearly state under plant specifications that the plant is not pet friendly. It is not in our pet friendly collection and we have never stated that it is pet friendly in any written form. Again, we hope the cat is OK and we will rethink our product information to make it clearer so that this doesn't happen again. Thanks, -The Bloomspace Team
Perfect..way bigger than I expected

Plant Guide

Let’s start with how the Sansevieria looks. You can see why it’s called the snake plant because the long, thick leaves grow straight up and look much like the animal they are named after. Bending slightly here and there, it’s like a snake in movement, going upward and growing tall. There’s also a banding pattern on the leaves going from yellow to light green to dark green, giving them a lovely aesthetic.

Another design characteristic that many people love are the texture of the leaves. They are very thick and have a leathery feel that also harkens back to snakes. They can grow to over a meter in length, and their leaves reflect a good amount of light and add a wonderful texture to any room or area. Just place it anywhere to add some complexity to your intended area.

While all this is great, you might prefer to own the Sansevieria plant because it’s one of the easiest plants to care for. Every plant needs two things: light and water. When it comes to both, the Sansevieria needs a minimal amount of them. It needs almost no light, making it ideal for apartment owners or anyone who isn’t home that frequently. They also don’t need any direct sunlight. Just some indirect light is more than enough for this plant to grow properly.

The same goes for water. This plant can withstand infrequent watering with ease while still looking strong and healthy. Even if you forget to water it here and there, the plant will adapt and still thrive despite the lack of attention. They also grow well in nearly any temperature or environment, making them great for novice owners or those who just can’t give their plants much attention. In short, you have to try to kill these plants because they will grow through anything.

So, if you’re looking for a plant that has an amazing design that adds a layer of complexity and texture to your room, and if you want a plant that can withstand even the worst growing conditions and still look lovely, then the sansevieria might be right for you. The snake-like leaves are truly beautiful and you’ll love what they add to your room.
