Scientific Name: Chlorophytum comosum

Common Names: Spider Plant, Airplane Plant, Animal Plant

Overview: Many people have grown the Spider plants in their homes for several years. It is a fast-growing plant that has arching leaves. These plants can make for great decoration pieces, and there are several ways you can repot them and put them around the house. The standard cultivar of the spider plant is characterized by its long, blade-like leaves that blend from a pale yellow to a rich green toward the edges.

The airplane plant is a great option if you just started gardening. It will not require much care and still give you the best results. Moreover, its air purifying features are a great addition to your home, especially if you live in an area with a lot of pollution. Make sure they get adequate sunlight and water, and you are good to go. A little care can go a long way. As long as you follow the right care guidelines, your plants will be in good hands.


Purify and Amplify Your Space with a Spider Plant

The Chlorophytum comosum, also commonly known as the Spider Plant, is a popular choice for plant enthusiasts. These plants make for a beautiful addition to your home, and you can keep them by the window or nearby stairs to add a natural element to your space.

This plant was initially found in the tropical rainforests of South Africa and became popular worldwide in the 19th century. The reason for its popularity can be its air-purifying traits. If you want to improve the air quality of your home, the spider plant can remove 90% of all the toxins in the air.

The ‘Spider Plant’ got its name  because of its pups. The pups of these plants resemble the body of a spider with all its legs. The plant is also known to produce flowers in the summers. There are different types of spider plants, the most popular being the Airplane plant. This type is also called the chlorophytum comosum ‘reverse variegatum’ and has streaked green leaves.

Caring for your Spider Plant

Since these plants are very good at adapting to their environment, you need to be very careful. Do not stress when taking care of them but make sure that you do not entirely neglect them.


There is no strict requirement for this plant’s lighting, but you must ensure that your plant gets adequate to help them grow. The best place for these plants in your home is near the window; partial sunlight will help your plants thrive. However, avoid giving them too much sunlight as that can make the plant’s leaves go brown.


The spider is not very picky with its soil. There are many different kinds of soils you can use for your animal-plant such you can go for acidic or alkaline soil, or you can also go for a chalky and clay option. Just make sure that the soil is well-drained and does not soak too much water.


It is a good idea to water the new spider plant sparingly. Make sure they are completely dry before you water them the next time. To check the dryness, you can use your finger and push it down on the soil. If the soil is completely dry, you can water the plant again. When the plant becomes mature, you can water it more frequently.


For spider plants, you can get an all-purpose and water-soluble fertilizer. There is no strong need for fertilizer, but a granular time-release fertilizer can do well for your plant.

Common Issues

These plants are a great example of sturdy plants; they do not damage easily or let pests affect them. However, you might face some common issues when growing these plants.


The spider plant is susceptible to different pest infestations such as Aphids, spider mites, or mealybugs. These pests can eat your spider plant; however, if you want to avoid them, you can mist them now and then, which will help keep your plants safe from any infestations.

You can also use organic insecticides made of vinegar to remove all the insects.


Overwatering your reverse variegate can cause different diseases, such as the browning and shriveling of the tips of the leaves. Other than that, it is best to place your plant in a humid room to avoid all sorts of diseases. You can even keep it next to the bathroom, providing your plant with all the humidity it needs.


It would help if you pruned this plant when its roots start to bound. You can cut an inch off the bottom ring from both sides.


These plants are easy to propagate, and you just need to repot the plantlets. These plantlets are shorter versions of the plant. Care for them, and you will be able to propagate a mature plant.


You do not need to repot your spider plant often. Their growth is mostly limited to their leaves and plantlets. However, when the root ball rises and protrudes from the pot’s rim, that is when you need to repot your plant. The best time to repot your plants is in the spring.

  2. BARBARA KINDER (verified owner)

    Smaller than I expected but nice

  3. Linda C. (verified owner)

    Poor spider plant was upside down in the shipment. It also has so many black leaves. I hope I can nurse it back to health.

  4. Elizabeth Lutze (verified owner)

    Well, it was not your fault, but it came with box a little mashed in, and when I took it out the way I was supposed to, most of the dirt was out. But I put it all back in the pot, redid it, gave it a little water, and we will see what happens.

  5. Janice (verified owner)

    It’s pretty much in shock and doesn’t resemble the picture at all. I bought it as a present for my granddaughter, so I’m hoping it will perk up by October 6, or I will keep it and find something else local.

  6. Sandra (verified owner)

    Had babies when I got her. One got snapped during shipping but the other is thriving!! Will definitely order again!!

  7. Grant (verified owner)

    Plant looked better than the pothos I ordered but again, much smaller than advertised, and with yellowing leaves.

  8. Gail Ghiloni (verified owner)

  25. Kelly B. (verified owner)

    My goodness what a beautiful, big, healthy plant. Even with a travel from Florida to Arizona it was beautiful. The packaging held the plant and soil in place. Not one broken leaf. Gorgeous.

  26. Donna (verified owner)

    They were in very poor shape when they arrived. I followed directions that were sent to me, but of the three plants, only one is still alive, and I’m not too hopeful that one is going to survive.

  27. Roxanne Kusske (verified owner)

    They are a little sad looking but hopefully I can nurse them back.

  28. Angie P. (verified owner)

    It survived the rough handling.

  29. Ashley (verified owner)

    Seems to be just ok – arrived with brown spots and holes in the leaves.

  30. Becky C. (verified owner)

    My spider plant arrived intact and healthy! I watered it per directions upon arrive. It is on a stand in my dinning room window enjoying its new home! Thank you for a great plant! I would recommend your company and will purchase again!

Why others chose the Spider Plant

Easy to propagate for more plants and that bushier appearance will look nice on a shelf.

I bought this to add some height and volume to my existing garden, which is predominantly succulents.
