Snake plant (Mother in law's tongues)
sanseveria frifasciata

In childhood, I learned that the plants discharge oxygen and assimilate carbon dioxide.
This function of the plant is paid attention concerning environment pollution,
Sanseveria is one of the plants that are called Eco-plants. It discharges oxygen, assimilates carbon dioxide and removes the vaporized chemical. I hear that it is easy to cultivate. All that I have to do is watering it only once a week in summer, and not need watering it in winter. No worry of harmful insects.
I bought these plants ten months ago. Do you see a new bud has come out in my photograph?
