Chlorophytum comosum aka the Spider Plant

Subscription Save

If you just want a plant to fill a space where you think you should have a plant this is the plant! Simple, beautiful and practically un-killable the Spider plant has been a staple of many an indoor plant collection for decades, maybe even millions of years. The spider plant has also been shown to filter formaldehyde (sometimes present in glues and resins used to make many household products) from the air. 

Originally for South Africa these beauties produce a rosette of strappy variegated leaves. As they mature the mother plant will begin the produce many little plantlets that dangle from their runners giving the appearance of fleshy green and white spiders, hence the name.

    Caring for your Chlorophytum comosum aka the Spider Plant


    Bright indirect light and a humid position is what these guys love but they can adapt to much lower light than most houseplants. They don't like frost but they actually prefer cooler growing conditions. Their cool growing preference and ability to adapt to low light makes them the perfect plants for a cool bathroom or laundry or some other forgotten corner of the house.

    Managing Growth

    These plants will handle heaps of abuse. You can cut them right back to the base at anytime to get some fresh new growth. Regular pruning of pups may be required to keep the plant looking tidy (if that's the look you’re going for) otherwise just let it do its thang!


    Wait until the top 2-3cm centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out before watering heavily. Water less in in the cooler month to replicate the tropical dry season. These guys are pretty tolerant if you miss a watering or two, but you will see noticeable increases in growth during the summer months if you remember to water regularly.

    For more detailed care information, please refer to the our Plant Care Guides.

    Our special eco packaging

    No Plant Stress

    Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

    Stability Support

    The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

    No Re-Potting

    Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

    Fully Recyclable

    The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste.
