Chlorophytum comosum 'Vittatum known as Spider Plant, is a popular and visually captivating houseplant that adds a touch of grace and vibrancy to any indoor space.
With its long, arching leaves and striking variegation, the Spider Plant is a true showstopper. The leaves feature a beautiful combination of green and creamy white stripes, creating a stunning contrast that adds depth and visual interest to its overall appearance.
One of the Spider Plant's remarkable qualities is its ability to produce long, cascading stems adorned with baby plantlets, also known as "spiderettes." These spiderettes dangle from the mother plant, resembling tiny spiders hanging from a web, hence the name "Spider Plant."
These plantlets can be easily propagated to create new plants, making it a fantastic choice for plant enthusiasts looking to expand their collection or share with friends.
How to care for Spider plant:
Light: They prefer bright, indirect light. Spider plants can tolerate lower light as well. This feature makes them low-light tolerant plants.
Place them near a window with filtered or indirect light for optimal growth.
Water: Spider Plants prefer slightly moist but not waterlogged soil. Overwatering can cause root rot, so it's important to ensure proper drainage. Adjust your watering frequency based on your environment's temperature, humidity, and light conditions.
Soil: Plant your Spider Plant in a well-draining potting mix. A mixture of Coco Coir, Perlite, Vermiculite, Pumice, Activated Charcoal, and Worm Castings. We have mixed them for you. For Spider plants' soil, click here. Good drainage is essential to prevent soggy roots.
Temperature and Humidity: Spider Plants can tolerate lower temperatures but should be protected from frost. Average household humidity is usually sufficient, but they can benefit from slightly increased humidity levels.
Fertilizer: Follow the package instructions for the correct dosage. Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to root burn.
Maintenance: Remove any browning or yellowing leaves by trimming them at the base. Spider Plants appreciate occasional misting to increase humidity and keep their foliage fresh and vibrant.
Propagation: Spider Plants are prolific propagators. The spiderettes that develop on long stems can be carefully cut off and placed in water or planted directly in moist soil to root and establish new plants.
Toxic to pets and children: Yes
Air purifying: Yes
