Caring for Charlotte

Light

Spider plants will adapt to various light conditions, but will be happiest in bright indirect light. Too much sun will burn the leaves, and too little light will lead to weak growth. They also grow happily outside in semi-shade to shade.

Water & humidity

Water when the top 2-3cm of soil is dry, overwatering will lead to root rot.

Feeding

Fertilise sparingly with a balanced organic plant food every month or two, overfertilising will lead to brown leaf tips. 

Re-potting

Although Spider Plants grow fast, they only need to be re-potted every second year or so, as most of the plant's energy goes into producing new plantlets, which dangle on long runners, that in the wild grow along the ground. This enables the plantlets to root in the soil. These can be snipped off to make baby plants. It's also easy to split Spider Plants during re-potting.

Atrium Top Tip

A healthy Spider Plant will have fronds that arch upwards and hang down. If fronds are looking flattened, brown, or the leaves are falling off, try moving it to another location and check that it's getting the right amount of water.

Quirky plant fact

Spider Plants produce little star shaped flowers along tall stems. There are 38 species of Chlorophytum found in South Africa, easily recognised by the runners that produce plantlets, which root along the ground. The plants have been used by the Nguni to infuse a protection charm for pregnant mothers.
