Spider Plants

The spider plant is extremely hard to kill! One of the best gifts for a brown thumb. Once the plant matures, and roots in the pot the spider plant will grow shoots out that have little white flowers on them. The spider plant can be reproduced by cutting these shoots like the ones below and simply soaking them in water. Over a period of a couple weeks to a month, roots will emerge and then you plant them in regular potting soil. Spider plants can live in a variety of lighting and soil conditions, so they are perfect for the "plant neglector" in your life! The scientific name is Chlorophytum Comosum. The clorophytum comosum make a great hanging plant and can be enjoyed for years! HMMM I wonder what the next post will be, I think I may be running out of plants in my house! I don't think I would know what else to talk about. For more information about the spider plant or to purchase the spider plants click here!
