A version of this care guide is included with each Spider Plant purchase

Follow the instructions below and you should not have problems with your Spider Plant. All plants experience some shock when moved around and may take a bit of time to adjust to their new environment in your home, but the Spider Plant – like all our plants – is strong and adaptable, so take care of it and give it patience and it will reward you with its beauty.


The Spider Plant likes medium to bright indirect light, so make sure it's placed where the light is filtered or out of direct path of the sun.


The Spider Plant likes to have moist soil, so give it a bit of water about once or twice a week, especially if the top part of the soil feels dry to the touch. As with all plants, avoid overwatering and drain any excess water from the bottom of the saucer, as standing water may cause root rot.

Other Things To Know

Sometimes the tips of the leaves get brown, which is a natural occurrence. Feel free to trim away the brown tips by cutting them off with a scissor (outside the line where any green leaf tissue turns brown). The brown tips may also be a result of fluoride present in tap water – try using rainwater or distilled water if the brown tips bother you.
