Spider Plant Care
|Temperature:||Minimum temperature should be no lower than 45°F (7°C). Ideal is approximately 60° - 75°F (15° - 24°C).|
|Light:||Nicely lit room without direct sunlight.|
|Watering:||They like plenty of water, between spring and summer. In the winter they should need a lot less.|
|Soil:||Any decent potting mix.|
|Re-Potting:||Re-pot in spring, if needed (outgrown its pot). Look for roots growing out of the drainage holes of the current pot.|
|Fertilizer:||Feed during spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer.|
|Humidity:||Avoid too much hot air as this will affect the leaves. Spraying a water mist in the summer and within a warm artificially heated room will help.|
|Propagation:||Propagate by dividing the main plant or replant the plant-lets that grow from the main plant any time between spring - fall.|
Overall these plants are easy enough for anyone to take care of. The more care given the better they look, though!
