Plant, Spider 4" Chlorophytum Comosum
A spider plant is one of the easiest houseplants to grow, even for beginners. It’s also one of the most interesting. It has long, narrow leaves growing in rosettes that drape over the edge of the pot, with the added feature of even longer shoots producing plantlets that can be rooted and separated from the parent plant.
Spider plant needs are simple:
- Place the plant in bright to moderate light in a room that’s a comfortable temperature for everyone.
- Keep the soil slightly moist. Once-a-week watering is sufficient in spring and summer; in winter, allow the soil to dry a bit more between waterings. Some houseplants – including spider plants – are sensitive to fluoride in tap water. Consider using distilled water or rainwater for the plants.
- Fertilize every two to three weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer, following product directions.
