Spider Plants or Airplane Plants produce arched green and pale yellow stems that extend to be 12-18 inches long. When less than a year old, Spider Plants may produce tiny white flowers during the summer. These easy-to-grow plants look especially nice in a hanging basket.
The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is considered one of the most adaptable of houseplants and the easiest to grow.The spider plant is so named because of its spider-like plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web. Available in green or variegated varieties, these spiderettes often start out as small white flowers.
1.Grow in soil-based potting mix in bright to moderate sunlight, but not directly facing hot sun.
2.Maintain average room temperature and humidity.
1.Use room temperature water.
2.Use distilled or purified water, if possible.
3.Let the pot surface feel dry to the touch before watering.
4.Water until water drains from the bottom and empty drained water from trays promptly.
When you find that you have a small bunch of leaves at the end of the original spider plant, cut it off with clean scissors and plant it in its own plant pot and continue the process of how you did with the original spider plant.
*Groom spider plants by trimming off dead leaf tips or leaves with scissors.
