Get to Know Spider Plant!

Highlights

This plant can grow in a wide range of conditions and suffers from few problems, other than brown tips. The spider plant is so named because of its spider-like plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web.

Watering

Water your Spider Plant when the top 50% of the soil is dry.

Sunlight

Your Spider Plant will tolerate lower light conditions, however, they prefer bright indirect light where they will flourish. The striping on the leaves will be more prominent with indirect lighting. Avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch the leaves.

Pet-Friendly?

Yes! This plant is pet friendly.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

WILTED – One obvious problem is improper watering, the soil should not be allowed to dry out.
Overwatering can also cause problems. Don’t let the soil get soggy in the summer, and in the winter let it dry out between light waterings.
The wrong amount of light or heat can also result in wilting spider plants. Spider plants do best in bright but indirect sunlight, like in a south-facing window or a space outside that receives less than 6 hours of sunlight.

OVERHEATING - A problem that often comes with too much sun, can also cause wilting spider plants. If your spider plant has been drooping in bright, direct sunlight, give it a good soak in a bucket of water for 15 minutes, then move it to a shadier, cooler spot. Of course, spider plants do need some sunlight. If your plant is wilting in full shade or far from a window indoors, move it to a sunnier spot and see if it perks up.
