The snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata), also called mother-in-law’s tongue, this plant is native to West Africa. It’s really hard to kill these hardy suckers – they do well indoors, in small planters, with little water – and NASA rated them as one of the best plants for purifying the air. It will passively absorb formaldehyde and nitrogen, and you don’t need to do much aside from enjoy the benefits of it!
