An oldie but a goodie.. Spider plants never went out of fashion in our opinion!
The Spider plant is one of the easiest plants to care for. We love their thin, palm-like leaves which will bring a tropical effect to your living space, office or bathroom. The spider plant's other names include chlorophytum comosum, spider ivy, ribbon plant and airplane plant. These nicknames have been given due to the shape of the plant's leaves - some say they look like spiders or propellers.
The spider plant has an incredible feature - it produces its own babies. These babies are also known as spiderettes or pups - how cute is that! These babies can be easily spotted as they are the mini little spider plants you see on the end of a runner or offshoot from the plant. You can leave them attached to the main parent spider plant but they can take root and start growing a new plant. If you have a bundle of plants on a shelf, then you might not want a new spider plant growing into a neighbouring pot. Therefore, another option is to cut the runner to separate the spider plant baby from the parent and grow it into a new plant!
Not only is this a way to create a brand new spider plant (which could be a lovely present for a friend), but it also helps to keep your main plant in good health. The more babies a spider plant produces, the more it will need fertiliser and water as the babies use up a lot of the parent's energy (just like with humans).
You can find out even more about our wonderful spider plant and how to take care of it in a guide we have written that covers the spider plant's needs when it comes to watering, light, temperature and more.
Other names: Chlorophytum comosum, common spider plant, spider ivy, ribbon plant.
This Spider Plant likes a bright spot but not direct light and it will grow before your eyes. Water once a week to keep the soil damp. A kitchen or bathroom is a good location as it will enjoy the higher moisture levels. Let the soil dry out a little between watering.

Lovely healthy plant which arrived well packaged. The grey pot it came in just adds that extra bit of luxury.

It is a beautiful, healthy plant which arrived very well packed. It will sit in a small group on my bathroom windowsill. The extra little plant enclosed gave me this idea.

Good healthy plant, it’s already started to grow and will be hung in the window in the spring. Just love the plants I buy from this company, their customer service is the best.
