The Dirt

Native to tropical and Southern Africa. This is a good plant to water once a week, however, it does not mind if you skip a week or two. It is forgiving! These plants grow fairly quickly. Healthy Spider Plants grow “pups” which are offshoots from the mature main plant. They can be propagated. 

Part Sun

This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Water once a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.

if the tip of the leaves turn brown, that is normal, and can mean the plant needs more humidity in the air. Mist every other week
