Also known as the “Golden Bird’s Nest” and the “Mother in Law’s Tongue,” this version of the Snake Plant is extremely popular as a houseplant due to its ease of care and unique appearance. Its foliage grows straight upward in a wavy, snake-like pattern, and it sports a bright green throughout with golden yellow accents along its border. Instead of growing out from a long stem as many other houseplants do, its leaves grow straight out from the soil.
Native to Africa, the Snake Plant enjoys a wide range of environments, making it an ideal option for almost any household. A central aspect of this plant’s appeal is that you will not have to make any serious accommodations when introducing it to your home. So long as it receives consistent watering sessions and is not placed directly in the sun, you should have no problems keeping it happy!
