Killing plants so you don't have to

Spider Plant aka Airplane Plant




This is a fun plant. Known as ‘spider’ or ‘airplane’ plant it has long all green leaves or green with white striped leaves. it sends out shoots in the spring with very tiny white flowers. Later these shoots develop baby plants which can be cut off and planted once roots form or left on the plant.

This plant is not picky about anything. It will grow in any window, and doesn’t mind if you forget to water it occasionally.

Tips of the leaves will turn brown if salt builds up too much, repot it in fresh soil and when you water it, be sure to let water flow through and out the bottom for a few minutes.
