Snake Plants

A house plant for anyone! If you want to start improving your green thumb, this is a wonderful place to start.

Sansevieria trifasciata

Winter can be cold and dreary at times, especially if you live in the northern half of the United States. There may be snow, or there may be brown, dormant grass. Evergreens are around, but most plants have died back to their dormant roots, and the trees have dropped their leaves to wait for spring’s arrival.

It’s during winter that I most enjoy and appreciate the added greenery of indoor plants, or “houseplants”. Not only do they add that bit of natural green to a room, they also help provide oxygen to the air during a season when fresh air is too cold to readily welcome inside.

What’s even better about the snake plant? It’s REALLY easy to grow, and equally as difficult to kill. If you do not have much experience with tending house plants, or if you are looking to start with something easy, this is a great place to begin!

What makes the snake plant our “plant pick”?

As said before, it truly is very easy to care for. Snake plants are not picky about getting too much light, and they do not require watering very often. They are also quite forgiving if neglected a bit.

Easy to grow!

What else is interesting about snake plants? They not only provide oxygen (like all plants), but they also help filter indoor air, making it fresher and cleaner!

Natural air filter!
