Also known as mother in law's tongue, these upright broad-leafed plants are a popular option for lowlight areas! They can withstand basement quality light with no issues, and are also the top air purifying plant according to a NASA study. The infrequent watering schedule also makes it a good option for busy folks and frequent travelers!
