Why You Need a Snake Plant in Your Home

Snake plants are one of the healthiest indoor plants you can bring into your home. There are over 70 varieties, and they come from Madagascar, Africa, and south Asia. They are both beautiful and practical - they help filter out harmful chemicals and radiation, which can age the body and make it sick.

These plants do well in indirect sunlight, but I love them because they can survive even if not a lot of natural light comes into your home. They only need to be watered enough so the soil does not completely dry out. You do not want to over water these plants, they do not need a ton to survive. Just a bit of TLC is perfect.

Snake plants are perfect for your home office because they are known to soak up Wi-Fi radiation. Radiation may cause cancer, fertility problems, and skin irritation when laptops come in contact with skin.

Snake plants are also known to remove formaldehyde from the air, which comes from things like dryer sheets and paint. Too much formaldehyde is known to cause cancer - snake plants filter the air to keep this gas at healthy levels.

Another reason why these plants are amazing is because they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen at night, providing more clean air in your home.

Side note: I am looking at my snake plant on my desk as I write this. Its name is Trevor, and it is great. I love Trevor! So cute, and protects my health. Now it's time for you to get a Trevor of your own!
