Originating from West Africa, the Snake Plant makes a fantastic addition to any room, but it’s an excellent option for your living room, bedroom, or kitchen. It looks excellent and also processes carbon dioxide with a niche method. Known as the crassulacean acid metabolism process, this allows it to go without water for long periods of time, so you only need to water it every month or so.
The Snake Plant is also one of only six plants in the world that is able to remove four out of five toxins in the air that are related to ‘sick building syndrome,’ according to the NASA Clean Air Study. This is where a certain building or place gives you symptoms like headaches, itchy skin, sore eyes, rashes, and fatigue through poor air quality and other factors.
