This variegated spider plant has been awarded a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit as it is an incredibly easy plant to grow. Good for the novice as well as the more experienced houseplant enthusiast, this species has a weeping, arching habit. Strap-shaped leaves are light green and white striped. Place it where it will receive decent amounts of indirect light and mist the leaves every so often (in addition to watering).
