Spider Plant FAQ
What is a spider plant?
A spider plant, scientifically known as Chlorophytum comosum, is a popular and hardy houseplant recognized by its long, slender leaves and growth habit that resembles a spider. It's a favorite for its air-purifying qualities and ease of care.
Are spider plants toxic to pets?
Spider plants are a popular choice for pet owners because they are non-toxic to both cats and dogs. Always ensure pets don't overindulge on plant leaves, as it may cause mild digestive discomfort due to the unusual fibers. For more pet-safe gardening tips, visit our Flora blog.
How often to water a spider plant?
Water a spider plant roughly once a week, but always check that the top inch of soil is dry before watering again. They prefer to dry out slightly between watering sessions.
How much light does a spider plant need?
Spider plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. They can tolerate low light but flourish with more light exposure. However, direct sunlight can scorch their leaves, so it's best to avoid placing them in full sun.
How long does a spider plant live?
With proper care, spider plants can live for many years, often lasting decades. They grow rapidly and can be propagated easily, making them timeless additions to your home.
🪴 Locally Sourced
It's not local when garden center trucks travel 1,500-3,000 miles on average to deliver your plants from far away brokers. We aim to keep our greenhouses under 150 miles* (often much less), away from the growers which results in reduced pollution, plant waste and damages, and lower the amount of time the plant is in transit.
👩🏼🌾 Supporting local farmers
Our farmers earn double through working with us compared to when selling to traditional large box retailers! We accomplish this by sourcing locally directly from the farmers, eliminating multiple deliveries, packaging, and subscription fees.
We use wood fiber to cover our soil to help prevent soil spillage.
The wood fiber is placed over the soil, right under the foliage.
We then use a plastic bag to cover the planter and wood fiber portion of the plant.
Next we secure it tightly with a zip-tie.
We then place the houseplant in a paper bag and secure it safely with a rubber band.
