Spider Plants

The Spider Plant (Chrlorophytum cosmosum), is one of the worlds most common house plants. While they are native to tropical regions of South Africa. They have since been naturalised around the world. The Spider Plant is a perennial flowering evergreen that propagates by sending out offshoots. Creating tiny spider plants known as pups!

In England however, they are still more commonly found inside our homes and green houses. The Spider Plant is best suited to bright but indirect sunlight, but they will tolerate partial shade and should only be watered when the soil feels dry to the touch. Where possible make sure to use filtered water or rainwater when giving this plant a drink (some of the chemicals found in most tap water can damage the plant and make the leaves start to turn brown).
