The Snake Plant

Snake plants originate from West Africa and are a member of the Asparagacea family. Their scientific name is Sansevieria trifasciata, although recently it’s actually being considered a Dracaena instead of a Sansevieria. However, I’m not ready to accept this change so for me, it’s still a Sansevieria! The snake plant does have some nicknames like Viper’s Bowstring Hemp, and St. George’s Sword. It’s most infamous nickname is ‘Mother-in-Law’s Tongue,’ because it’s of it’s sharp, pointed leaves but we definitely don’t recommend gifting this one to your mother-in-law.

A major plus of this plant is its ability to clean the air in your home! It removes harmful toxins and releases fresh oxygen for you and your family. This unique plant also releases oxygen during the night so place it right on your nightstand and enjoy a more restful sleep!
