Common name

Spider plant

 

Growing conditions

Feed every 2-3 weeks during growing period. Spider plants can get aphids but only if the plant is weak. Brown tips are from underfeeding (can also be from bruising or very hot air). Pale and limp leaves in the winter – too much heat or too little light. Brown streaks in the leaves in winter – too much water under cool conditions when the plant isn’t growing.

 

Watering

In the summer give it plenty of water, in the winter water much less and let it dry out.

 

Aspect

Most aspects but not full shade and not full direct sun. The darker it is, the greener the leaves will become.

 

Temperature

Don’t let it drop below 10 degrees C. Not too fussy otherwise.
