The graceful, easy care, indoor spider plant, that can also grow outdoors in the shade during the summer, produces leaves directly from the centre of the plant. When kept root-bound, a spider plant sends out numerous long stems with baby plants at the ends that can easily be used for propagation. Spider plants are available with green leaves, green leaves trimmed in white, or white leaves trimmed in green. All varieties are easy to care for and fun to have. A spider plant is inexpensive and a great choice for beginning plant lovers; an added plus, spider plants clean the air of harmful toxins.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Spider plants like medium to bright indirect light. Solid green varieties need less light than green and white varieties. No Spider plant should ever be put in the direct sun.
WATER CONDITIONS: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before you water. A good way to tell when a spider plant needs water is to look at the leaves. The green color in the leaves starts to fade when the soil is dry. Water high in salts and chemicals causes brown leaf tips. Never use water that had passed through a water softener; it is much too salty.
