🌿 Sansevieria (AKA Snake Plant or Mother in Laws Tongue)
Description: The Snake Plant is an interesting looking & practically impossible to kill houseplant! I recommend this plant to anyone who is a previously a serial houseplant killer. The Snake Plant is tall and stalky and is so shiny it almost looks fake! While most plants take away oxygen at night, the Snake Plant will give off oxygen at night. The Snake Plant also filters formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and benzene from the air.
Why I Love It: I love it because it reminds me of Mad Men & my favorite era of design; Mid-Century Modern.
My Quick Care Tip: Snake plants love to be ignored! The soil should dry between waterings and they need even less water during the winter. If possible, try to avoid getting leaves wet when you water.
Buy it Here: You can probably find Snake Plants at your local Home Depot or farmer’s market, but if you are looking for a more mature on you can buy one online.
