Our spider plants for delivery bring the lush jungles of Southern Africa to your home. One of the best air purifying plants, we love it for its spiky variegated foliage. It's easy to care for and looks great set on a table-top or hung from a macrame sling. You can even keep it out on the patio during summer — just remember to bring it inside if there's any risk of frost.

Chlorophytum comosum Care Guide

  • Medium

    This plant prefers low to medium levels of indirect sunlight.

  • Medium

    Water well, but make sure the soil doesn'Äôt become soggy.

  • Medium

    Does well with moderate humidity.

  • 70 to 90

    Spider plants will endure temperatures as low as 35°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.

  • Monthly

    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

    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.
