Nicknamed for the plantlets that dangle down from the mother plants, the spider plant is a quite common houseplant. They are easily cared for and the plantlets can be placed directly in the soil or water to root providing you with a never ending supply of spider plants.
They have variegated grass-like leaves and like indirect, natural light. These plants tend to be the thirstiest of the ones we’ve recommended but even they will forgive a little negligence on your part.
If you’re sick of the plain, old spider plant try out ‘Bonnie’. White and green variegated leaves twist and curl in an unusual pattern creating a very interesting looking plant.
Chlorophytum comosum 'Bonnie Green'.
