Spider Plant

Chlorophytum comosum
Airplane Plant

The graceful, easy care, indoor spider plant, that can also grow outdoors in the shade during the summer, produces leaves directly from the center of the plant. When kept root-bound, a spider plant sends out numerous long stems with baby plants at the ends that can easily be used for propagation. Spider plants are available with green leaves, green leaves trimmed in white, or white leaves trimmed in green. All varieties are easy to care for and fun to have. A spider plant is inexpensive and a great choice for beginning plant lovers; an added plus, spider plants clean the air of harmful toxins. Read about other easy care houseplants, like this spider plant, in  Don’t Talk to Me, I’ll Grow Better -A Guide to Easy Care Plants
