Sansevieria are also known as snake plants or mother-in-law tongues are excellent house plants for beginners. They can tolerate even the darkest corners and even can thrive in artificial light.
Even though these plants can tolerate limited sun they do need to be exposed to some form of light all day, whether it be florescent light, grow bulbs or even indirect sun from a nearby window. Do not leave them in a dark room.
These incredible plants can also withstand periods of drought for the forgetful plant owner however too much water will cause the roots to rot.
