A Day Late and A Dollar Short
Better Late Than Never
A photo of one of my snake plants…with a red bud and a pot of gold! I had never seen my snake plant do this… don’t even know if it means anything, the red bud. It died off and there is nothing left but a dead bud. (The snake plant is still alive!) That’s the way it goes sometimes, I guess.
So I looked it up, but couldn’t find anything on red buds…
But, I did find this…
Snake Plants are also called mother-in-laws tongue
native to tropical West Africa
purifies air by absorbing toxins through the leaves,
producing pure oxygen
considered a good bedroom plant because of this
(releases night time oxygen)
NASA recommends 15-18 medium to large size plants for a 1800 square foot home
~ got that covered ~
Good for persons/people with allergies
(May release moisture into the air/reduce airborne allergies)
hard to kill and easy to maintain…
– requires less water than other plants (sometimes I only water every other week, maybe a third of a cup or less)
– takes up little space (until they start reproducing…)
– can be placed just about anywhere (tolerates low light conditions and direct sunlight)
– a good starter plant
I have at least one snake plant in every room upstairs, except the wood stove room… I guess in the fall, when I bring them back inside (I’ll be putting them outside in the next couple of weeks), I’ll make sure there’s a couple downstairs as well.

Hope you have a great day!

** I know that today is the day I post my dad’s story…I may post it later today, or tomorrow. I’m heading out into the yard here shortly, to get some more work on my gardens done! It all depends on when I’m actually able to sit down and work on it… I was thinking of writing about the liver disease and how it affected him/us, it’s fresh on my mind right now. Whether I write it in Word and copy it over, or the other way around…I’m not sure. We shall see how things go…
Thanks for understanding!
