Variegated Spider Plant Overview

This Variegated Spider Plant has been awarded a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit as it is an incredibly easy plant to grow. Grown for the leaves, this lovely houseplant is great for beginners. Popular with both novices and more experienced houseplant enthusiasts, the Variegated Spider Plant has a weeping, arching habit. It produces a mass of strap-shaped leaves, coloured green with white striping on the outer leaf edges. Small white flowers may be produced at any time of year when growing indoors as a houseplant. Place it where it will receive decent amounts of indirect light and mist the leaves every so often (in addition to watering). It can help to filter air and easily grows in shade, indoors and in baskets making it a very popular houseplant. It propagates itself! Spider Plants produce lots of little baby plants on spidery stems, these can be easily rooted in water or soil, whilst on the plant or separated.
