Hi, I'm Chlorophytum com. Variegatum but you can call me the spider plant. I'm definitely up there with one of the most popular houseplants. I have leaves that are slender, bright green, with a wide, creamy-white stripe down the centre.
I can also form small white starry flowers with short stems that also bear small plantlets (baby spiders) that are so easy to propagate.
I'm quite easy to care for and one of my finest attributes is that I'm known to purify the air. I help filter all the toxins from the air to help keep your environment as clean as possible.
I'm in a 14cm pot and I'm 50cm in tall.
I like bright, in-direct light and to be well watered with moist soil during growing season. Average warmth for me too please.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I like average household temperatures (above 16°C). I'm fairly tough so I could survive temperatures above 8°C in winter if my soil is kept fairly dry. Keep me well-watered, with moist soil, throughout the growing season. I don't need as much water in the winter.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I'm not toxic. Don't worry guys!
