Spider Plants, also known as Cholorophytum comosum are the easiest and best hanging plants in your home or your patio. This is one that is only 1 1/2 years old and is so healthy and beautiful. I took a baby plant off one of my Mom's plant. It likes moist soil (not soggy) and tolerates warmer temperatures. I feed the plant every 3 to 4 months using a house plant fertilizer. It is so low maintenance and easy to grow. My tips turn brown and I found out it is from the chemicals in the water you get from the city because it is treated with Chlorine and fluoride. If you give it bottle water, the tips won't turn brown, however, I just use the city water. I have my whole patio on a drip system that automatically gives all my plants water every evening.
Propagation is so easy, you just cut off one of the plantlets that are hanging from the mother plant and plant them in moist dirt. It usually takes about one month for them to start growing.
If you live in a area that has frost or snow, just bring it in during the winter months. It loves the steam in your bathroom!
My plant currently has 3 bird nests in it. The birds just love to nest in this plant!
If you don't have one of these plants, you really need to get one!
