Description for Chlorophytum, Spider Plant (Light Green)

The Spider Plant, or Chlorophytum comosum, is possibly the most popular house plant. One of the most interesting points of the Spider Plant is its ability to rapidly propagate itself, through us, people!

A baby or pup from the mother plant will often root with a very high success rate and within a year it s producing babies of its own to give out to your family and friends. Children love it and adults too.

They are good at purifying the air in your home and they are very easy to maintain.

Chlorophytum Comosum Bonnie has the traditional green with white stripe variegation of the Vittatum but it leaves curl and bend.

Planting and care

Chlorophytum comosum grows very well in cultivation. Its ornamental, gracefully ascending-spreading to recurved leaves in a central rosette make it so popular.

The many pups or vegetative plant-lets are usually given away by the owners and this has resulted in the species being one of the most commonly used and popular houseplants throughout the world.

The white-striped cultivars are probably more often grown than the original plant. In the garden it grows best under trees or on shady embankments, especially in gardens in the Indian Ocean Coastal Belt. It is a fast grower.

In other parts of the world, it can also be grown out-of-doors, but is best cultivated in Mediterranean-type gardens where frost is not too severe (parts of California and the Mediterranean).

The plant prefers partial shade, especially in hot dry climates. It should, therefore, be protected from full sun. Plants should reach flowering size within a year.

Caring for Chlorophytum
