I absolutely adore fresh-cut flowers, gardens, and indoor plants. However, my track record with taking care of plants is not the best. It’s been due to a variety of reasons from forgetfulness to the complete opposite…over nurturing. I have literally smothered plants with water and love to the point of no turning back. Or, I completely forget about them for a week. Either way, it hasn’t been great.

However, a few months ago, I became determined to give the indoor plant thing another try. There was a corner in my Annapolis apartment that needed one, so I started the search for a low maintenance plant that loved the sun.  I ended up going with the snake plant (see images above) and am so happy that I did. The plant is indestructible. It is better to under water it than over water it, so I water it (just a little bit) about every 2 weeks or so. It’s important that the soil is completely dry before watering it again. Thankfully, I have reigned in my over-nurturing tendencies and am happy to report that the snake plant is happy and thriving!  Fun fact- it was only $15 at the local Home Depot and the ceramic pot was a $20 find at HomeGoods. Another reason to consider the snake plant is that it helps purify the air, removing dangerous toxins from your home.

Do you guys have houseplants that you love? Let me know in the comments below.
