How cute is this 'Lickety Split' Philodendron?! It features glossy green, deeply cut leaves that create a beautiful accent in any room or office. This philodendron has very few problems and tolerates neglect and dry indoor air.

We love the Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii'). This succulent plant is characterized by its upright sword-like leaves with vibrant yellow edges. Its incredibly easy-going – it can tolerate low light and drought – and has great air-purifying capabilities. A perfect option for beginners!
