It can grow to about 7 feet for a dra­matic touch in a room, but a smaller pot will keep it con­tained if you’d like it to stay smaller. It does well in in­di­rect light. The soil needs to be some­what dry, wa­ter­ing once or twice a week.

Spi­der plants do well with evenly moist soil and bright or medium light­ing con­di­tions. wa­ter­ing 2-3 times a week will have it thriv­ing.
