Carol Walker, a member of the Clermont Garden Club, is pictured here with Librarian Amy Hand at the Cooper Memorial Library. Carol is displaying her “SANSEVIERIA TRIFASCIATA” this month at the library.

This plant is native to tropical and sub-tropical regions of Europe, Africa, and Asia. It’s commonly known as the Snake Plant, Saint George’s Sword, or Mother-In-Law’s Tongue. To care for these plants, allow the soil to dry between watering, take extra care not to overwater in winter, also try to avoid getting leaves wet when you water.

They thrive in indirect light (although they are tolerant of a variety of light conditions). It is a good indoor plant as it cleans the air and it has the ability to absorb excess amounts of carbon monoxide and emits oxygen. For more information about the Clermont Garden Club,  go to website
