To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks .
Generalities Spider plant
The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. This plant in the winter assumes a greenwhite colouring; it is small in size and can reach 30 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Spider plant develops like a perennial herb.
Exposure Spider plant
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. Let's avoid exposing apartment plants to direct sunlight, which could damage the leaves, especially during the hottest months of the year. We should prefer a bright position, but with filtered light.The Spider plant needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside.

Treatments Spider plant
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Spider plant
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
Notes Spider plant
Seeing the quite contained development it’s possible to grow these plants in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
