Less is more when it comes to the Spider Plant. Try not to fuss around with this plant – even if this goes against your natural plant care instincts. If in doubt, under-water your plant and slowly and gradually increase the amount of moisture you provide if it seems a little dehydrated. Your spider plant will even tell you if it’s really thirsty, as the green stripy leaves will look dull and grey in colour. This is the plant telling you it urgently needs a drink.
If you don’t mist your plant regularly or place it somewhere with enough humidity, the leaf tips may turn brown. You can trim these off, but try giving your plant a spritz to keep the leaves healthy.
Spider Plants also don’t like being cold, so keep yours away from draughts or chilly rooms that don’t get much sunlight. Not enough light will also slow down growth and potentially fade the striking stripes on its leaves.
