The Spider Plant is a great plant for beginners. It's easy to care for and tolerates average room conditions.
The slender, arching leaves are green with a creamy white stripe. Leaves grow from a central crown and can reach up to 1 ft (30 cm) long. Give this plant plenty of light for the best leaf color. Plants grown in low light may lose their variegation.
When less than a year old, the plant produces small, white flowers on the tips of wiry, upright stems, called runners.
The runners are soon weighted down with plantlets giving it a spidery appearance. These plantlets -- often called "babies" -- are easy to propagate, giving you an ongoing supply of plants. For sure success, choose young, small plantlets for propagating because the larger plantlets are older and will root slowly.
