About Snakes and Spiders

The Snake plant has tall, spiked leaves that stand erect.  Their leaves hold water and make them similar to a succulent. 
In contrast, the Spider plant has gracefully arching leaves that flow nicely over the side of a hanging basket. Eventually, it sprouts young plantlets that make an appealing display on long bent stems. These like to dry out a bit between waterings like the Snake plants. The contrast between the two is attractive.

Care Level: I'm Easy

Easy to care for. Great starter plants!

Pet Friendly: Warning

Snake plants are toxic to pets if ingested.

Origins

Grown in the USA. Native to the wetlands in Central and South America.

Sansevieria species & Chlorophytum comosum Care Guide

  • Medium

    These plants enjoy moderate to bright indirect light.

  • Medium

    Water well when received, then allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Snake plants can sustain less water than spider plants.

  • Low

    Spider plants enjoy humidity. Spritz occasionally.

  • 70 to 85

    Spider plants will endure temperatures as low as 45°F without injury, but temperatures below 65°F retard growth. Temperatures above 90°F will not immediately damage the plant but raise the transpiration rate and increase the uptake of potentially toxic micronutrients.

  • 9|10|11

    Outside: Grow in morning light, partial shade (4-6 hours) where nights are above 45°F.

    Indoors: This plant prefers bright, to medium indirect light for at least six hours in a southern, eastern and western windows.

  • Weekly

    Fertilize bimonthly during its growing period. Use a balanced liquid fertilizer at 1/2 strength. Reduce fertilizing during the fall and winter months while the plant is in its dormant phase.  If brown tips form, withdraw from fertilizing. Raise the humidity around it and never use chlorinated or fluoride in the water.

  • 2 Years

    Repot the Spider Plant in the early spring in a well draining soil mix. Use a container with drainage holes.  Add a piece of screen to keep the soil from spilling out but allowing drainage. Water the plant ahead of time to hydrate. Add the mix to the bottom of the new slightly larger container. Tease the roots if they are root bound in the pot.  Carefully place it in the center, adding backfill around the edges. Leave a 1/2 inch of space between the soil and the top edge to prevent water spillage. Water thoroughly and let drain.

  • Bi-annually

    If foliage needs a trim back, use sterilized scissors. Cut back to the base of the stem and the spiderettes. Trim off any blackened or brown tips to keep energy going to the main plant. Remove any dead, damaged or diseased leaves and clean debris from soil. Replenish soil as needed.

  • Cuttings|Division

    Remove a spiderette from the mother plant. Dip the end where the leaves originate into rooting hormone powder. Place in dampened soil. Cover the spiderettes with a clear, plastic bag and mist. Check soil moisture periodically. Within six weeks, the roots should be getting established. Place in bright to medium, indirect light and follow care instructions.
