(Sansevieria Zeylanica) Air Purifying Plant - EASY CARE Houseplant, Housewarming, New to Gardening Gift
Snake Plants convert CO2 into oxygen at night (as opposed to most other plants) so they are the ideal plant to brighten up a bedroom and help you sleep better by breathing cleaner, oxygen-rich air all night long.
The Snake Plant is recommended by NASA's Clean Air Study for it's air purifying attributes. Add one (or a combination of different purifying plants) for every 100 sq. ft. of indoor space and say goodbye to 90% of your indoor toxins! This hard-working plant specifically filters formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and benzene from the air.

A happy camper indoors or out. Snake Plants love the full sun of an outdoor garden, but will also thrive in low light indoor corners. Do bring them indoors at the end of the fall if your region experiences harsh winters. Exposing Snake Plants to temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit can result in scarring of the leaves.
Also, be careful not to overwater it. Once every two to three weeks is enough (even less during winter!). Water-logged soil can rot the roots and hurt the plant. Monitor the leaves from time to time, if they're bright and green, you're doing a good job watering. If they seem slightly dull, you might have to increase the water supply.
