If you're looking for an easy-care houseplant, you can't do much better than snake plant. This old-fashioned houseplant is still popular because of how adaptable it is to a wide range of growing conditions. Most snake plant varieties have stiff, upright, sword-like leaves that may be banded or edged in gray, silver, or gold. Snake plant's architectural nature makes it a natural choice for modern and contemporary interior designs.
