Spider Plant, or Chlorophytum comosum, is one of the most adaptable houseplants and can grow in almost any indoor environment. This evergreen perennial plant is a member of the Asparagaceae family. It has a very distinctive look with tiny offsets hanging from the parent plant, looking like spiders on a web.
Chlorophytum comosum has long, thin green leaves with creamy yellow edges that can reach around 12 inches in length. This plant is especially suitable for hanging baskets and tall planters.
Spider plant is very effective in cleaning indoor air by absorbing common toxins like formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, and carbon monoxide. This plant is also resilient, making it a perfect plant for any home and office.
A mature Spider Plant occasionally produces dainty white flowers that have 3 to 6 petals. These flowers are unscented and very short-lived.
Spider Plant thrives in bright to medium indirect sunlight, but it also tolerates lower light conditions. Too little light, however, can slow down its growth. Avoid hash direct sunlight.
Spider Plant should be watered about once per week. It prefers slightly moist but not waterlogged soil. Water thoroughly and drain well after each watering.
Spider Plant loves moist but well-drained soil. It prefers a soil mix with a slightly acidic (pH 6.0-7.0).
This plant grows best in normal room temperatures (between 65°F-85°F)and does not like temperatures below 50°F. Spider Plant tolerates a wide range of humidity from 40-80%, making it an easy houseplant for any living space.
This plant should be fertilized once or twice during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
