Houseplants can give your home a clean, natural aesthetic, but more then being decor, they can provide cleaner air in your home. Today’s houseplant highlight is the Snake plant, also known as mother-in-law’s tongue.

 

Advantages

In Florida, this plant grows all over. There is a good chance you or your neighbor has it growing in the yard. This plant thrives in bright, indirect lighting, but can also grow in direct light and shaded areas. Are you someone who forgets to regularly water their plants? Another reason to love snake plants. They only need to be watered every 2-8 weeks and the soil should be almost completely dry before adding more. Too much water can cause the plant to rot. Water and forget!
