The Snake Plant -
Sansevieria trifasciata, snake plants (also known as mother-in-law’s tongue) are succulent perennials native to South Africa, Madagascar, and lands surrounding the Indian Ocean. They are one of the easiest houseplants to grow, tolerating extremely low levels of light and moisture. Snake plants have been found in a NASA study to purify the air of harmful toxins.
Low to medium to bright, indirect light
Once weekly if in brighter light, or when it starts to wrinkle. Reduce waterings in winter to half. Make sure the soil is completely dry before watering.
Generally low light plants need a little extra love compared to succulents. Luckily it's usually obvious what kind of love they need.

Peperomia obtusifolia is a species of Peperomia, named 'obtusifolia' meaning blunt-leaved. Some leaves may be more obtuse than others, and some might be split, which is natural variation. This tropical plant grows low but gets high praise from horticulturists worldwide. This peperomia is easily propagated via leaf-cuttings, and is able to regenerate after completely dying back to the stem. Peperomias are also the safest to grow for curious cats and dogs.
Medium light. Tolerates low light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water weekly to semi-weekly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot.
Peperomias will let you know as soon as they're not feeling the love by wilting, this is a great indicator that you need to water.

BIRD'S NEST FERN -
Asplenium nidus, or Bird's Nest Fern is a tropical fern that is quite the charmer. In the wild, this fern grows everywhere- epiphytically on trees and terrestrially on the ground! It'll grow anywhere in your house as long as you keep it away from direct sunlight and dryness.
Low to medium to bright, indirect light. Prefers indirect light.
Water weekly. Ferns can handle wet soil better than other plants, but still do not like to be sopping wet all the time. Allow soil to half-dry out before watering. This fern is sensitive to low humidity and the fronds will burn if the air is too dry.
This fern is sun-shy, and loves humidity, so it's perfect for a kitchen or bathroom.
