I've decided that Snake Plants (Mother-in-law's Tongue) are the ultimate home/office plants. They require little light, watering every couple of weeks, and are very difficult to kill.
Home Depot has little Snake Plants for $5 each, which seems like a really good deal, so I grabbed 2 of them – one for my bedroom and one for my office. But now I think I need more. 🙂
I'd like to put a few more around the apartment, and a few more around work. If you'd like to donate to my "Snake Plant spreading" cause, just click on the PayPal Donate button over to the right (at the top of the sidebar) and put something about "Plants" or "Snake Plants" in the purpose/notes field.
I'm going to have to call the local greenhouses and see if they have a better deal, but I think they're going to have a hard time competing with $5.
Since Snake Plants can be propagated by splitting the plant apart, I think it might be neat to get some extra pots and turn some of the purchased plants into 2-3 new plants.
