The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is considered one of the most adaptable of houseplants and the easiest to grow. This plant can grow in a wide range of conditions and suffers from few problems, other than brown tips. The spider plant is so named because of its spider-like plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web. Available in green or variegated varieties, these spiderettes often start out as small white flowers.
The amount of light your space receives depends on the direction of the window and how far from it the plant is.
Check the direction of your window, then put your plant within the range suggested below.
Plants come in nursing pots, usually plastic containers that could use a little personalizing. They come in standard sizes: 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″ (the number refers to diameter), bare root(b/r) or preplanted in decarateive pot (pot) .
When choosing a decorative pot to slide the nursing container in, look for a size slightly larger (1-2″ larger), so it can fit comfortably. E.g. For a 4″ nursing pot, pick a decorative pot with a 6″ diameter.
