Spider Plant 'Bonnie'
Chlorophytum comosum 'Bonnie'
Airplane Plant, St. Bernard's Lily, Spider Ivy, Ribbon Plant
A favourite houseplant that easily multiplies by generating offsets on the end of long stems. Break the offsets off and root in soil or water to grow into new plants. This cultivar has been developed to have swirly, curly leaves (especially the baby spiders) and these are also strongly variegated, with white striping. This species can help to filter air and easily grows in shade, indoors and in baskets making it a popular plant that may be found all over the world.
Sow seeds in Spring and keep moist.
Mother plants often give rise to little plants that can be broken off and replanted. Wait until the new plant has developed roots before removing though!
The inflorescence has long stems with spaced white 6 petal flowers along the middle to end.
