These plants can reach up to 90 cm in height and are native to East Africa. They like moderately bright growing conditions and high relative humidity, making them a great option for homes (not the fire pit, but the home) and offices.
When it comes to care, mother-in-law's tongues are relatively simple to care for. Be sure to water them regularly depending on the temperature. Weekly watering or closer in summer.

In addition to their unique and attractive appearance, mother-in-law's tongues are also considered air purifying. They can absorb pollutants such as cleaning chemicals and cigarette smoke, making them an ideal choice for the health and environment conscious.
