Slightly Greenish Thumb: The Snake Plant

I really wish I had the space for a garden, but until we move into to a place with an actual yard, I have to focus on houseplants. I have a history of killing most pants, because I forget to water them, or in the case of my poor aloe plant (which is recovering nicely) I watered it too much. I even bought one of those water globe things, but if one tends to forget to water their plants, then why the hell would one remember to fill their water globe? Anyway......In light of my forgetfulness, I like to choose plants that are practically idiot proof. Like this "Snake Plant" or by its fancy name: Sansevieria trifasciata. This plant can be neglected as fuck, and still look good. It can be kept in low light, and in the winter it can go months with no water. It is also one of the best plants to improve indoor air quality. It grows really tall, and it also blooms, tho mine hasn't yet..... and the color of this plant is soooo freaking striking!!! So if your green thumb is mostly brown, but you want a house plant, get one of these, for real.
