Thinking about dabbling in plant parenthood but not sure where to start? Here are a few of my picks for low maintenance chlorophyll companions to get you on your way. SNAKE PLANT (Sansevieria) Snake plants are survivors y'all. They don't need a lot of attention in terms of watering and can be left alone for weeks at a time. They're also well known to be able to tolerate low light conditions so if you have a darker space that needs sprucing up, Sansevierias are a great choice.
