Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

One of the easiest houseplants to keep happy. This very popular plant comes in many varieties with different leaf shapes and variegated color patterns.
  • Light: Indirect, low to bright light; Snake Plants are very flexible when it comes to light conditions
  • Water: Low water; provide sparingly under lower light conditions
  • Care: Allow the plant to "crowd" the pot before transplanting and use a soil with good drainage like E.B. Stone™ Organics Cactus & Succulent Mix
  • Known for air-purifying qualities
  • Toxic to pets
ZZ Plant
A perfect beginner houseplant! This tropical-looking houseplant grows in a graceful, wand-like shape with bright-green, waxy, oval leaves; can grow up to 6' tall, but you can control the height.
  • Light: Medium to high light; place these succulent-like plants where they can get enough light to use water efficiently
  • Water: Low water; avoid letting the soil stay wet for long periods of time
  • Care: Allow the plant to "crowd" the pot before transplanting and use a soil with good drainage like E.B. Stone™ Organics Cactus & Succulent Mix; feed with houseplant fertilizer sparingly to avoid top heavy growth
Dracaena

Peperomia has a playful look. Its a unique, easy-to-grow succulent that has wide, flat, shiny leaves with colorful margins or variegation, depending on the variety.
