Description

One of the most adaptable houseplants is the Spider plant, scientifically classified as Chlorophytum comosum. The spider plant has green with white-striped leaves. It produces long, thin, and slightly arched foliage. It is fairly easy to grow and care for, and it looks very beautiful in a hanging pot. You might be thinking, Why is it called a “Spider” plant? The name is due to its spider-like appearance. Its leaves dangle from one mother plant or crown and there are stolons that like the legs of the plant. Other common names for spider plants include Airplane plant, Spider ivy, Ribbon plant, and St. Bernard’s lily. Each has an interesting reason. The spider plant is also known for purifying the air around it. They produce little white flowers in summer. It’s a great addition to any room in a house.

Sunlight – It will tolerate lower light conditions, however, they prefer bright indirect light where they will flourish. The striping on the leaves will be more prominent with indirect lighting. Avoid direct sunlight.

Watering – Water well, but do not allow the plants to become soggy, which can lead to root rot. Spider Plants prefer to dry out between waterings.

Plant Care – Brown leaf tips may indicate the air is too dry, so mist your Spider Plant regularly. The Brown leaf can also be due to the chemicals found in water, which cause build-up. If this is the case, allow the water to sit out overnight before watering or use filtered water.
