Chlorophytum comosum 'Spider Plant'
Spider Plants are beloved for their ease of care, pet safe leaves, and fantastically simple method of propagation. Simply snip pups from mature plants and pot them directly in soil, then give the gift of plants to a friend! Many plant obsessions start with this delightful, quick-growing species.
Native to tropical areas of Southern Africa.
Spider Plants grow best in bright-indirect sunlight. However, an hour or two of direct sunlight in the morning could benefit this plant and encourage it to grow faster. An east facing window would be ideal.
Let this plant dry out slightly between waterings. Water when the top two inches of the soil feels dry to the touch.
Chlorophytum comosum can be easily propagated by division. When inflorescences develop, watch for small leafed and rooted pups called plantlets. Once roots have developed, snip the plantlets from the inflorescences and plant them directly in all-purpose potting soil. Fertilize: Feed your Spider Plant once every two weeks during the summer with a water-soluble fertilizer diluted at half the recommended strength.
6" wide hanging Nursery pot. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
