The Snake Plant aka Mother In Law's tongue is a succulent plant known for it's ability to grow just about anywhere in the home. Its also noted for purifying the air by absorbing toxins through the leaves and producing pure oxygen. It features stiff, upright leaves that can grow well over 2 feet in length.
This is a great choice for the beginner or the most experienced plant parent. Snake Plants can easily thrive in low light environments. The Laurentii variety features green and bright yellow sword-like foliage.
Sansevieria Laurentii is native to tropical West Africa. What makes this plant unique is that it is able to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide using the crassulacean and metabolism process. There are very few plants that exist that are able to do this. This allows the plant to thrive for extended periods of time without water. It is also able to exchange gases using its microscopic pores. They open at night and close during the day so that it doesn't lose moisture through evaporation.
