One of the most popular houseplants ever, spider plants have been staples of homes, offices and sun rooms for decades due to their striking looks and how quickly and easily they can grow. A happy spider plant will produce long, trailing stems with baby plants (also called "pups" or "spiderettes") which look a bit spider-like.
Water: Allow top few inches of soil to dry out in between deep waterings.
Light: Loves lots of bright, indirect sunlight.
Soil: Does fine in any well draining potting soil.
Humidity: Will do well in low humidity environments, but benefits from higher humidity. Mist often, keep on a pebble tray or near a humidifier for best results.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month using a dilute solution of balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer. Do not fertilize over winter months.
Tip: These plants actually like being root bound, and it promotes the growth of little pups. Don't transplant too often.
