Chlorophytum comosum varieties (Spider Plant)

A classic and ever-popular house plant, the spider plant has long green leaves with white margins. A vigorous grower, producing arching green stems with clusters of baby plants at their ends which will form their own roots and can be severed from the parent plant. Given a large hanging pot will make an eye-catching specimen for a house conservatory or office. It doesn’t need full direct sun in fact the leaves can scorch if they get too much. They do particularly well in a bathroom but anywhere in the house except a very hot, sunny windowsill is fine. This is an easy to look after house plant and is ideal for beginners. They will survive a mild winter outdoors.
