Plant parenting is fun, overall – and indoor plants have many science-backed benefits, such as reducing stress levels, boosting your productivity, and improving the quality of indoor air. Aside from all these perks, however, it’s up to you to determine your plant’s survival, and you can do so with the following tip. There are different factors to take into consideration with this objective, including light absorption.

Snake Plants are a natural choice for any amateur gardener. That’s because these sturdy plants require very little of their owners to keep growing!

Promote slow, controlled growth by keeping them out of direct sunlight, or follow the opposite advice for a more lively, full plant.
