Hawaiian Spider Plant | Chlorophytum viridescens 'Hawaiian'
Spider plants are easily recognized by their long, narrow leaves which spill out from the plants center. These plants are easily propagated, as baby plants are produced from stolons, or runners. Native to South Africa, the Spider plant has been among the most popular of indoor houseplants for years and years. These plants are also considered non-toxic to pets, making them a popular choice for plant lovers who also have curious furry friends.

Spider plants will do best in medium to bright indirect light. Low light can be tolerated but is not suggested. Harsh, direct light should also be avoided as it can burn this plants leaves.
Water and Soil
Spider plants like their soil to remain fairly moist, but never wet or soggy. Allowing the top layer of soil to dry out between watering is best. This plant likes well-draining, porous soil. A well-draining potting soil that is amended with peat moss for absorption and perlite or bark for drainage will work well. Peat moss gets lighter in color when dry, helping you to gauge when this plant is ready for its next drink. A plants weight is also another great way to tell if it needs water.
Temperature and Humidity
Spider plants prefer typical room temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees F. Cold drafts and temperatures below 55 degrees F may damage this plants foliage and should be avoided. While spider plants will tolerate low humidity, they certainly appreciate and benefit from higher humidity.
