If they gave prizes for houseplants that can take a ton of abuse, Snake plants would be one of them.  Neglected for weeks at a time they still stay healthy and fresh looking.  Now who could ask for more when considering a potted houseplant?


Potted Snake plants can handle low light which is great for dark winter months.  They are ok drying out which is good for homes where the heaters tend to suck out the moisture in the air and the air becomes pretty dry.  The soil in pots tend to dry out faster than normal.

But a bonus benefit is they keep the air inside your home clean, removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene.  Just by placing a few of them potted in different room, you can remove up to 87% of toxins.  Put a
potted snake plant next to a bed, on a desk, in a living room or any space where they can go to work.

There are many types of snake plants and many can be found at your local nursery or garden center.  We like to seem them mixed up indoors to give some interest.

Let's Grow Hens & Chicks



 647

Growing hens and chicks is super easy and fun to do.  Here are a few tips to consider when trying your hand at this garden project!

Most potted hens and chick love full on sun.  Part time sun is fine but don't place a potted planter in the shade.  Get them out there and show them off.

Always provide good drainage. If you select a planter without drain holes, then they should be drilled.  Don't over water these babies and don't underwater in the full on heat of summer.

You can buy starters at most garden centers but we can guarantee that you will never have to buy them again.  They are easy to divide and they will reproduce like mad.  

It's alright to leave them outside during winter but moving them indoors is not a bad idea either, especially in case of extreme cold spells.  Be aware of the type of planter that you use that in case of cold the pot won't break.
