These tough, air purifying plants thrive on neglect and are a must have for any low maintenance indoor garden. There are many cultivars to choose from in lots of colors and shapes. Zeylanica have dark green and grey stripes, laurentiis have light green variegated striped leaves, and black corals have dark green leaves and silver variegation. Snake plants grow from underground rhizomes that hold water, so they can go weeks without needed to be watered.  They are native to tropical and sub tropical regions of Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Snakes can tolerate low light conditions, but will grow (and potentially bloom) in medium or bright light.

Toxic to pets: can cause stomach upset and vomiting.
