June 27, 2005: Snake Plant

Also known as "mother-in-law's tongue" and Sansevieria trifasciata. This is one of my favorite houseplants, because it is happy with low light and weekly waterings, It grows slowly, but it does grow, and is easy to propagate . . . just take a six-inch section of cut-off leaf, let the end dry for a couple of days, stick it in potting soil and keep it damp.

And occasionally it blooms. I've got a blooming one in my house now. Rich perfume. Very good for morale. Mmmmm.
