Cliff Spider Plant Overview

The cliff spider plant is a new, recently named, cliff-hanger species from the Kouga and Grootrivier tributaries of the Gamtoos, in the Eastern Cape. Unlike its close relative, its inflorescence does not bear vegetative plantlets, and the plant develops stems up to a metre long. Its flowers are white and star-shaped on an extended panicle. It thrives in containers. It is one of about 250–300 species mainly confined to Africa and Asia.
