Snake plants top every beginner houseplant list for a reason! They’re hardy, forgiving and look really striking. They thrive best with direct sunlight, but are also comfortable in a darker corner. Watering doesn’t have to be consistent, it just has to happen, but do not water too much. Normally, the green and yellow leaves will stand tall and taut. If they look soft and wrinkled, then it’s definitely time to give it a drink!
