This relatively new spider plant is a fresh twist on an old (and reliable) classic. That's because the foliage of this one is a zingy lemon-green, but just like its older cousin, it will still jettison arching stems from the foliage, each with a new 'baby' plant at the end.
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
- Home care: Water freely when in growth, but keep drier in winter. Mist the leaves every so often with water to increase humidity and make sure the winter temperatures stay above 8°C. Repot when it has outgrown its pot in winter.
