Spider plant I like the article

Irrigation Spider plantTenere asciutto
To avoid that a scarce drainage could favour the development of fungal diseases, let's remember to avoid leaving water in the saucer. Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Care 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.

Temperatures Spider plantPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the The Spider plant , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only 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 is grown at home or in a warmed green house; during the Spring it can be moved outside, but only if the mimimum temperatures are clearly mild.

Adversity 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.

Substrate Spider plant
These apartment plants favour very well drained soils.
