Scientific Name: Chlorophytum Comosum
Probably the most popular houseplant of all time, spider plant produces a spreading clump of broad, arching, green blades. It is typically grown as a hanging basket specimen because it produces long, pendulous, wiry stems with lots of spidery plantlets at the tips, hence the common name. When actively growing, spider plant produces clusters of small, single white flowers. The fruits that follow are triangular, three-celled capsules filled with several large, black seeds. This is one easy to grow plant.

Gardening tips: Water your spider plant with distilled or purified water. As they are sensitive to the fluoride in tap water. Fertilize spider plants 1 to 2 times per month during the spring and summer. Trim dead leaf tips or leaves with scissors. Heal blanched leaves by reducing the sun exposure. (Soil and Tools & Equipments sections may help you carry out these tasks).
