If there is one plant that you must hang in order to highlight your interior design, it’s me. Ideal for beginners because my roots retain moisture, you can forget to water me for a while.

How can you recognise me?

I look disheveled with my long, drooping soft leaves, green and white. In the summer, some small white flowers looking like mini-lilies  flourish. and turn into small clumps called seedlings or rosettes.

Fun fact:

I am a depolluting plant able to remove 95% of polluting chemicals according to the NASA.

6"-14" high

Shade / partial shade


2X / week from April to September 1X/week the rest of the year


As soon as there is more roots than soil. The Spider plant has thick roots taking a lot of space. Repot it so a slightly bigger pot (2"-3" max)
