Spider Plant

Chlorophytum comosum, often called the spider plant, is a flowering perennial herb. It is native to tropical and southern Africa, but has become naturalized in other parts of the world, including western Australia[2] and San Francisco, California.[3] Variegated forms in particular are used as houseplants.

Spider plants are easy to grow, being able to thrive in a wide range of conditions. They will tolerate temperatures down to 35 °F (2 °C), but grow best at temperatures between 65 °F (18 °C) and 90 °F (32 °C). Plants can be damaged by high fluoride or boron levels.[10]

Growing Conditions:
Light: Undemanding. Spider plants prefer bright light, and tend toward scorching in direct sunlight. However, they will grow in conditions ranging from semi-shady to partial direct sun.
Water: Water liberally through the summer. Mist occasionally. During winter, cut watering back.
Temperature: Do not let fall below 50ºF or expose to cold drafts.
Soil: Spider plants like fast-draining, well-aerated potting mix.
Fertilizer: Feed weekly during the summer with liquid fertilizer or use pellets at the beginning of the growing season.
Propagation:
Spider plants are one of the easiest houseplants to propagate: simply pot up the small plantlets. Make sure the young plantlets have developed roots. Alternatively, mature plants can be divided during repotting.
