Learning tips for gardening better!!

The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is a popular and easy-to-care-for houseplant known for its arching green leaves adorned with white stripes. Native to tropical and southern Africa, it’s celebrated for its air-purifying qualities and resilience.

To care for a spider plant, place it in bright, indirect sunlight. While it can tolerate lower light levels, optimal growth occurs in moderate light. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, ensuring proper drainage to prevent root rot. Spider plants appreciate humidity, so misting occasionally or placing a tray of water nearby can be beneficial.

Fertilize monthly during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Repotting every 1-2 years helps manage root growth. Spider plants produce small white flowers and “spiderettes” (baby plants) that can be propagated by planting them in soil or placing them in water until roots develop.
