Adding a bright note year-round, Chlorophytum comosum ‘Vittatum’ is a very ornamental, rhizomatous, evergreen perennial featuring a basal rosette of arching, narrow leaves, up to 18 in. in length (45 cm), adorned with central creamy-white stripes. Small, white, starry flowers are borne in loose panicles above the gracefully cascading foliage. Plantlets are usually formed at the flowering nodes. Native to South Africa, Variegated Spider Plant is primarily grown for its attractive foliage. Very popular in cultivation due to its drought-tolerance and its relative disease and pest free nature, it is incredibly easy to grow. This is probably the most cultivated houseplant in the world. It also looks great in hanging baskets or container displays in summer.
Sunlight – Bright, indirect light. Will tolerate some shade; however, this will slow its growth rate and it may lose its stripes. Avoid direct sunlight.
Watering – Keep well-watered, aiming for lightly moist soil throughout the growing season. Less water is needed in the winter.
Plant Care – Baby Spiders can be pressed down into compost and left to self-root, giving you a second plant to pass on to friends and family. Some brown tips may occur, these can be trimmed away if preferred, but avoid cutting into the green part of the foliage.
