A vintage favorite in the houseplant world, spider plant has been enjoyed in Victorian parlors as much as in studio lofts a century later. They’re super-easy to grow, tolerate all levels of light, and they don’t mind if you miss a weekly watering. Spider plant, also called airplane plant, grows well in containers or hanging baskets. A spider plant likes bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as it has the potential to scorch the leaves. Spider plants will grow in low light but they will grow slowly and may not produce plantlets. Spider plants prefer if their soil dries out a bit between watering.
