About Stevie

If you're a beginner in the world of indoor plants, Stevie the snake plant is a perfect place to start as he's one of our unkillable plants. Those long, sculptural leaves mean he will look striking in just about any interior. The sharpness of his leaves once saw him rather rudely nicknamed Mother-in-Law's Tongue.

A native to parts of Africa and southern Asia, Stevie is happy to live just about anywhere. He's also one of the best air-purifying plants you can buy, sucking up things like formaldehyde and benzene during the day, then releasing pure oxygen at night, making him the perfect plant to bring some greenery to your bedroom.

Dry conditions
Stevie's a snake plant, which are easy when it comes to watering. Give him a drink only when his top inch of soil is dry.

Any light conditions at all
Snake plants are ideal for houses or offices. Whether its full sun or a shady spot, he'll trundle on happily.

A bit of warmth
He'll make the best of almost any temperature but he'll suffer if he's left in a room below 10 C.

Top Tip
Snake plants' leaves may get a little dusty, so bring them back to their best by wiping every so often with a slightly damp cloth.
