Spider Plant is one of the easiest houseplants to care for. Thrives best in low to minimal light and biweekly watering. Spider takes toxins and converts them to oxygen. Its an old standby but try dressing it up in an urn or letting it hang over a bookcase.
The Snake plant does well in any lighting - EASY! You'll just want to make sure that this plant stays dry - oh darn, you can forget to water it and it will do just fine! This sounds like our kind of plant!
