The Snake plant has tall, spiked leaves that stand erect. Their leaves hold water and make them similar to a succulent.
In contrast, the Spider plant has gracefully arching leaves that flow nicely over the side of a hanging basket. Eventually, it sprouts young plantlets that make an appealing display on long bent stems. These like to dry out a bit between waterings like the Snake plants. The contrast between the two is attractive.
