Low Light Pet Friendly Trailing

A great plant to grow for beginners, the Spider plant is extremely easy to look after. Also known as Chlorophytum comosum, this house plant is fast growing and incredibly hardy. It has striking variegated foliage and forms ‘pups’ when it is looked after well. These ‘pups’ are small spider-like plants that hang off long curled stems, almost like they are dangling from a spider’s web. These trailing stems make the spider plant perfect for placing on a shelf or in a hanging basket. 

The Spider plant originates from the tropical rain forests of South America. It thrives in loam-based soil with an acidic pH and prefers bright, indirect sunlight. This adaptable trailing houseplant is fast-growing and can reach a height of about 20 inches. The little ‘pups’ can be easily rooted — either by pushing them into soil when they’re still attached to the main plant or by separating them and then planting them in soil.

Not only does a Spider plant add a tropical vibe to your room but it’s good for your wellbeing too. It releases oxygen into your surroundings and is known for its ability to filter toxins out of the air. This makes it the perfect choice for your live décor.

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.

Hardy Spiderplant Chlorophytum Comosum Variegated

Came in a 4 inch plastic pot. He shipped with two other plants and some of the leaves were in rough shape from shipping. The other two plants were fine. I gave him a haircut to get rid of the damaged parts and he’s growing just fine now, so the plant itself must be healthy. Looks great in my sitting room, and I like not worrying about killing my cat if she eats this plant.

Adds wonderful greenery to your living space

I have been on the look for a lush plant that’s cat friendly. I got this from verdantlyfe and very happy with the quality of my plant. It’s in great condition and well cared for.
