The snake plant, or sansevieria, is a wonderful, fascinating plant that can survive in most light conditions and is basically unkillable. This makes it a great option if you don’t have a lot of natural light in your bedroom. It also stores oxygen throughout the day and then slowly releases it at night, purifying the air while you get some rest.

The snake plant is beautiful and comes in many varieties, colors and sizes. For best care, water the plant when the soil dries. Wipe the leaves well with a microfiber cloth every now and then to keep them looking shiny and healthy.
