Perhaps the most well known houseplant. Spider Plants are fairly pest resistant, and are one of the easiest beginner houseplants. They prefer bright indirect sunlight and thrive in well-draining soil. Allow Spider Plants to dry out between watering to prevent root rot. Once established and thriving in it’s environment, Spider Plants will shoot up a stalk of tiny white flowers from the centre of the plant. They will also send out stems and grow pups, or, “spiderettes”, which can be removed and repotted once they establish aerial roots. Spider Plants like to be root-bound, so repotting should only be done when the roots are coiled and growing out of the pot. Fertilizing once per month with a compost or diluted low-potency chemical fertilizer is advised during spring and summer.
