Snake plant, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, is a very easy plant to grow and nearly indestructible. It is excellent in a grouping or a table top display.
Make sure to let your snake plant dry out between waterings. It is best to err on the side of under watering these plants as too much water may kill it. However, it is drought resistant.
