- They are versatile and can adapt to lower light conditions and can even survive in artificial lighting. However these types of spaces may affect the lushness of your Spider Plant so keep an eye on their condition.
- Normal room humidity is sufficient, so you can choose any time of room with the right light for this indoor plant.
- Allow the soil of your Spider Plant to remain moist (not soggy) at all times. Watering when only the top 2cm's of the soil has dried out.
- If you water thoroughly until the water drains out the holes at the bottom of the pot, a good watering once a week should be sufficient in the 16cm hanging pot.
- Feed once a month in Spring and Summer with a liquid plant food.
