    This houseplant is incredibly popular as it is so easy to grow - just place it in a well-lit spot, water, and watch it grow! As it matures it develops stems, each of which has a baby plant at its tip. These can be pegged down into compost, and when rooted the stem can be cut and you will have another plant - great for jumble sales or gifts for friends!

    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.

Vigorous plant producing numerous baby plants.


Bought as a birthday gift in Jan 2021. Now in October it has grown vigorously and has produced many babies some of which are now independent plants in their own pots.

The Amazing Spider Plant


Spider Plants are one of my favourites, they're such hardy plants and I personally think rather elegant! The specimen I received was no different, though it was graced with brown tips and a few unfortunately broken leaves which I think must have happened in the process of packing. That is understandable, and I'm sure once it has had time to recover from the journey and settle into its new environment it will flourish.

Why do the tips of the leafs turn brown ?


Brown leaf tips can be caused by a wide range of things, but the most common are either not enough or too much water, or low humidity. It is also worth checking to see if the plant needs repotting, and that it is getting the right amount of light. Finally brown leaf tips can also be caused by applying too fertiliser, watering with hard or salty water, touching a wall or window, or simply being damaged by being brushed past. I'm sorry not to be able to pinpoint the exact cause, but I hope this helps you track down the culprit.
