Sansevieria, aka, Snake plant
If you ask keen plant collectors to name the most popular plant in the UK, chances are they’re list the current favourites that pop up on Instagram feeds or independent shops. But just like in the 1970s, there’s only ever been one king of the plants in the eyes of the UK public, and it’s the snake plant. With its rich, glossy, dark green succulent leaves, and relative ease to care for, this beautiful small plant has been a fixture in households as soon as they were introduced to us Brits.
Some would say they ‘thrive off neglect’, which sounds a bit sinister, but it’s pretty much spot on when it comes to this plant. The snake plant is the perfect plant for any novice looking to get into the world of plant collecting, or a seasoned pro looking to add an easy-care addition to their collection.
