Chlorophytum Spider, often known as the Spider Plant, is a stunning indoor plant that is ideal for beginners. It is not only simple to maintain, but it is also a NASA-certified air purifier. Its tall, green foliage with white variegations looks well in hanging planters as well as desktop arrangements. It blooms with little white flowers under favourable circumstances, and its pups develop on stems cascading from the plant.
Fertilizer/ feed for the plant: Every two weeks, give your plant a generic liquid fertiliser diluted to half strength.
Repotting : When your plant outgrows its present pot, repot it. Select a pot that is one size larger than the existing pot. The optimum time to repot your Spider plant is at the start of spring. Chlorophytum Spider can be grown by splitting the parent plant or by detaching and transplanting plantlets during the monsoon season.
