Hi guys!

Does anyone have a good site to recommend for purchasing a Snake Plant (aka Birds Nest Fern)? Also--Any other suggestions on low-light houseplants? Maybe I should just stop at our friendly Agway, huh?

Thanks much***Happy Gardening!***

PS: Another name for this plant is "Mother-in-laws tongue". I have no idea why they call it a Birds Nest Fern. It doesn't look like a Birds nest at all.

Here is a photo of the Snake Plant: Agavaceae/Sansevieria_trifasciata.html

Actually, I'm looking for any plants that can stand low light if that helps.

Thanks! [grin]

Snake plant and Bird's nest ferns are two different plants, from what I remember. I have a Snake plant, my mom had a Birds Nest fern and the two do not look alike at all.

This is a Bird's Nest Fern:

This is a Snake Plant:

Which one do you want?
