Snake Plant, or Sansevieria, is easy to grow and is nearly indestructible; they will thrive in either very bright light or almost dark corners of the house.
Although they are very forgiving, Snake plants prefer indirect but steady light with some direct sun. They can adapt to full sun conditions and will also survive quite dim situations.
Let the soil dry between waterings. During winter, reduce watering to monthly, or whenever the soil is dry to the touch. Err on the side of under watering; too much water can kill the plant.
