About Snake Plant
The snake plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata), or mother-in-law’s tongue, is a popular indoor house plant with tall, leathery, pointed leaves earning the plant its name. The sleek, upright shape of the snake plant can complement an arrangement of softer, bushier plants.
Snake plants are often used as home decor, as they’re pleasing to the eye, easy to care for, and require little water to survive.
The snake plant is native to Asia and Africa where it is believed to protect the home from evil influences, the mother-in-law’s tongue is also called a good-luck plant, but it might not be so lucky for children or pets – so keep off ground level if you have any small friends who may be prone to nibbling.
