    Features

    Popular, easy care houseplant with trailing habit and great texture. Strappy green leaves with bright white edges form a weeping, arching clump from which numerous plantlets form on hanging stems. Small, white, star-shaped flowers come and go throughout the season. Comosum chlorophytum is also refered to as spider plant due to its curly and very intreseting growth habit.

    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep your Spider Plant at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
    • Spider plants thrive in medium to bright indirect light. 
    • Spider Plants prefer moist, but not soggy soil. Be sure to water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure good drainage and do not allow your Spider Plant to sit in water for extended periods of time, after it has received a good soaking. 
    • Feed your Spider Plant once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. If no new leaves are growing, it does not need to be fertilized.
    • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
    • You can keep your Spider Plant looking its best by periodically removing any dried or dead leaves with a clean pair of shears. 
    • When repotting your Spider Plant, use an all-purpose potting mix, with perlite added to ensure good drainage.
