Well-loved for centuries, the Spider Plant is a classic, enduring staple and prime pick for your home. Known for its popularity since, the Spider Plant ticks all the boxes of effortless yet enduring style: it's easy to grow, adaptable and uniquely gorgeous.
The main plant and focal point, called the mother, rests in the center of the plant with iconically large and deeply-green, arching leaves. Hanging from the mother, smaller plants, often called spiderettes, add even more visual interest and ornamental value.
What are the other benefits of the coveted Spider Plant?
It's perfect for beginners: Minimal watering and less care means low-maintenance ease, so the Spider Plant thrives without meticulous curation.
It looks great everywhere: Whether you accent the top of a column or hang it from the ceiling, the Spider Plant adds interest wherever it's placed.
Finally, it's safe for pets: Many houseplants are dangerous for pets, but the Spider Plant is non-toxic for both cats and dogs.
Even better? The Spider Plant is a great air purifier too. Not only will your new Spider Plant look amazing, but it will also promote a healthful environment! Plus, you can even propagate more Spider Plants with the spiderettes cut from the original plant. Effortless, ethereal and eco-friendly - the Spider Plant is a must-have. Order yours today!

Planting & Care
Your Spider plant needs lots of indirect, bright light. The best place for your plant is near an east facing window that is free from drafts. Spider plants prefer a temperature of 55-65 F. Many people hang their plants, but you can also let it cascade off a tall surface like a column.
Potting Instructions: Fill a 4-inch pot, that has draining holes, with well-draining potting soil. Plant your Spider plant in the pot and cover only the roots with soil. Make sure your pot has proper drainage holes.
Re-potting: If your Spider plant's roots have cracked its pot, then it's time to re-pot. It's also a good idea to re-pot if you see roots showing above the soil.
Watering: You can use your finger to test the moisture level of the soil. If the soil feels dry, add water. If it doesn't, don't overwater. It's good practice to test the moisture level every week during the plant's young life. Spider plants do not tolerate overwatering.
Fertilization: You can add a general houseplant fertilizer every 3 months, but it is not necessary.
Pests: Your Spider plant is unlikely to attract pests, but if it does, simply spray with water to remove them.
Dusting: Spider plant leaves do collect dust, so be sure to keep your tree healthy by wiping down the leaves as needed with a dust cloth.
Browning: Occasionally, your Spider plant's leaves may become brown at the tip. If this happens, switch your water to distilled water. The fluoride in tap water can increase the salt intake, causing the tips of the leaves to turn brown. This is not dangerous for the plant. If you do not like it you can simply prune off the tip.
