My rooftop garden is my fortress of solitude from the stress of living in a busy Asian city. It attracts local wildlife such as tokay geckos, bats, and a host of native birds. AKA ‘Saint George's Sword’, ‘Mother-in-law's Tongue’, and ‘Viper's Bowstring Hemp’, the Snake Plant is a common garden and houseplant where I live. I grow mine in water gardens and this one lives in a white pot filled with stones and water. Our resident tokay gecko pops out from behind the pot.
