OTHERWISE KNOWN AS SANSEVIERIA OR MOTHER-IN-LAW’S TONGUE
The Snake Plant is much nicer than it sounds. In fact, while most plants use oxygen at night, this one gives it off…while filtering toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air. Otherwise known as Sansevieria (has a nice ring) or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue (not the nicest ring), the Snake Plant doesn’t need the spotlight (i.e. low light) and is low maintenance, to the point of neglect. So if you travel or are busy like the rest of us, it will be forgiving if you don’t check in as much as usual.
LIGHT: Low light, great for bedrooms
WATER: every 10 days
FERTILIZER: Use Jack’s Houseplant Food March – August
