    I was never very successful with snake plants. I’d unwatered them, overwater them, they would get leggy, fall over, rot or some other calamity. Then the smaller varieties started coming on the market. :) Joy :)

    For the most part I am successful. They don’t outgrow their space or if they do I rehome them. Here is my current collection. Thought I’d put some together as I am reorganizing for winter placement of house plants.

    Initially I fell in love with the grass like varieties but the birds nest varieties have charmed me in the last few years.

    I agree what a really lovely collection. I think it's about time I got myself a snake plant. :smt045
