Despite the creepy-crawly name, the spider plant is among the most popular (and easiest to grow) of all hanging or trailing houseplants. While these exceptionally hardy plants will survive in less than perfect conditions, in perfect conditions they are stunning. Although there is a pure green variety, the most common variety is the green-and-white striped 'Variegatum.'
Spider plants prefer bright light and tend toward scorching in direct sunlight. However, they will grow in conditions ranging from semi-shady to partial direct sun.
You should water them liberally through the summer and mist them occasionally. During winter, cut watering back.
