Yesterday i shared on my instagram stories a few tidbits about a plant i have at home.
Got me thinking, i should perhaps post it here on my feed where it will stay because there maybe someone who may benefit from this.
This is a Sansevieria trifasciata. It is most commonly known as the snake plant, or mother-in-law's tongue.
It is extremely tolerant of low light, needs very little water, (infact it will rot and die if you water it too often,) and it cleans the air, and releases oxygen at night. (whereas most plants converts oxygen into Co² at night.) It's also inexpensive, and easily available.
I got this one from @daroga.mv
The ceramic pot is from @homely.centro
So here is a quick version of my plant love story: i live in the city, a concrete jungle where the very soil of the whole island is completely covered with concrete too, except a five percent scattered here and there. So trees are too few, not even nearly as much as there should be.
So in an effort to get in touch with nature however way i can, i decided to keep some plants indoors. And there lies my next problem, i have zero natural light.
Like so many of you, ive bought and had so many plants die on me. Born and raised here, i had zero experience with soil or anything that grew. So i made my research, and bought the hardiest of all house plants, the snake plant. And ofcourse i killed it. I've gotten better since. I have a some plants around the house now and i am doing an ok job keeping them alive. 😯 And its good for my soul. Probably will be for yours as well. 😅♥️ #zerolightplants #sansevieria #snakeplant #houseplants #urbanjungle #plantstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantgang #botanicalpickmeup #planttherapy
