COMMON NAME: Spider Plant
Chlorophytum comosum Ocean is a compact spider plant, looking a little like Variegatum, with creamy margins and a green centre. It is an attractive, cascading plant, with small white flowers and ‘babies’ forming on long, narrow stems called runners. Ideal as a hanging plant.
Light: Bright, indirect light. Will tolerate some shade; however, this will slow its growth rate and it may lose its stripes. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water: Keep well-watered, aiming for lightly moist soil throughout the growing season. Less water is needed in the winter.
Temperature: Average household temperatures are fine (above 16°C). These are fairly tough plants so should survive temperatures above 8°C in winter if the soil is kept fairly dry.
Feed: Feed with a weak solution every few weeks during the growing season. Do not feed during the winter.
Care Tip: Baby Spiders can be pressed down into compost and left to self-root, giving you a second plant to pass on to friends and family. Some brown tips may occur, these can be trimmed away if preferred, but avoid cutting into the green part of the foliage.
Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection.
