Dracaena trifasciata (a.k.a. Snake Plants) are one of those oddball plants that can be classified as both tropical and succulent, they DO NOT like direct sun much though. Snake plants are known for being one of the easiest houseplant (for people who forgets about their plants). This plant can rot if you overwater it so it is best lean towards neglecting this plant than over-caring for it. Snake plants can most-certainly shatter pots if left alone for too long though, there are tales of people being woken up by the loudest "BANG!" at night, only to find out that it was their Snake Plant that shattered their ceramic pot! Luckily they are fairly slow-growing.
