Resilient and aesthetically-pleasing, the Sansevieria Laurentii is an easy-care houseplant that features variegated foliage. Named for its snake-like appearance, this plant displays leaves with alternating dark and light green markings with golden yellow outlining. Snake plants are commonly considered “hard-to-kill” indoor plants since they’re flexible when it comes to basic needs (as a type of succulent, they’re drought-tolerant!).
This plant makes the perfect gift as it thrives in various spaces, and is also a wonderful starter houseplant for those beginners. Bonus points: snake plants are believed to filter air, purifying the indoor environment.
