Curly Spider Plant
Posted on July 16 2019
The Curly Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is a curly variety of the traditional Spider plant. One of the most easy care plants around, and great for beginners for being hardy, not requiring much water and fast growing.
The spider plant is native to tropical and Southern Africa.
The spider plant flowers a small white flower which turn into plantlets (baby spider plants) that grow on the tips of the stem. These babies can be easily propagated to create new plants.
L I G H T :
Bright filtered light for the best growing conditions, but spider plants are nearly indestructible so they also can tolerate lower light really well!
W A T E R :
Water every few weeks in Winter and every week to two weeks in Spring and Summer. They can tolerate drying out.
P R O P A G A T I O N :
You can easily propagate the spider babies by chopping off the baby spider plant and potting straight in soil, or you can put the spider plantlet in water for a few weeks to grow some roots, and then pot the rooted plantlet in soil.
O T H E R N OT E S :
- Pet friendly. Great news, it won't harm your furry friend if they decide to have a little munch on a leaf.
