Averaging 12 to 18 inches tall, these bad boys are virtually indestructible. Seriously, this is the Bruce Willis of plants. Their thin, vertical spears bear a sharper edge, giving it the nickname ‘mother-in-law’s tongue’. And just like your mother-in-law, you don’t have to give it too much attention. Aim to water you Sansevieria Laurentii every three to six weeks as they store water in their spear-like leaves. They do really well in almost any light condition, so whether you’re in a corner office with sprawling views and sunlight or grinding away in a row of desks, they’ll do great in your workspace. The best part? Propagating them is easy-peasy, so you’re just a few steps away from the indoor jungle you’ve always dreamed of.
