    I was in Home Depot, today, with a buddy, and was standing around, waiting for him to refund something. I saw a rack of plants, and wandered over to them..... Well, all my life, I have know these tall slender leafed succulents, as "Mother In Law's Toungues"... No more....They are called Snake plants........Give me a break!!!!!!!

    In Peru they call the heel of the bread "La Suegra" (the mother-in-law) because nobody wants it.

    That actually is another common name for the Sansaverias, that isn't a new PC invented name.
