If you're a brown thumb looking for an easy plant to care for, you can't do much better than a snake plant. Snake plants can also be called mother-in-law's tongue and viper's bowstring hemp. These plants are native to West Africa and usually have stiff upright leaves and can vary in color. This hardy plant does great indoors and is adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions.
Snake plants can grow in just about any room of your house. They can tolerate low-light but will grow much faster in brighter conditions. Make sure you do not leave them in direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves.
Snake plants don't require much water and it is difficult to under-water it. Just be sure not to over-water! This is the most common way to kill this plant.
