The snake plant needs very little water, and it doesn’t require an abundance of sunlight, so it makes a great winter plant. Snake plants can even be left alone for a couple weeks if you decide to escape to a warmer locale for a winter getaway.
Try growing some aloe vera this winter so it’s ready to use when you get that summer sunburn! Aloe vera doesn’t need direct light, but it does need a warmer room. Try keeping aloe vera in a south or west facing part of your home and water it just once a week as it prefers dry soil.
