Back by popular demand! The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is considered one of the most adaptable of houseplants and the easiest to grow. 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. These spiderettes often start out as small white flowers, and they can also be easily propagated into young spider plants. Hence chlorophytum comosum is also sometimes known as hen and chickens. Another reason why the popularity of the spider plant has got to do with its air-purifying abilities. The spider plant battles benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene, a solvent used in the leather, rubber and printing industries. As an added bonus, this plant is also considered a safe houseplant if you have pets in the house! Caring for spider plants is easy. These tough plants tolerate lots of abuse, making them excellent candidates for newbie gardeners or those without a green thumb. Provide them with bright, indirect light and they will flourish. Also spray them daily to keep them healthy. Since spider plants prefer a semi-potbound environment, repot them only when their large, fleshy roots are highly visible and when watering is difficult. If you begin to notice spider plant leaves browning, there’s no need for worry. Browning of leaf tips is quite normal and will not harm the plant. This is often the result of fluoride found in water, which causes salt buildup in the soil. It usually helps to periodically leach plants by giving them a thorough watering to flush out excess salts. Be sure to allow the water to drain out and repeat as needed. It may also help to use distilled water or even rainwater on plants instead of that from the tap. *The spider plant comes in a plastic hanging pot that allows for drainage at the bottom.
