Water 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. We suggest watering these plants with 2-3 glasses of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 1-2 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed.

Cultivation 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.

Light Spider plantPosizione mezza ombra
It prefers partially shady locations, where it can be reached by the solar rays 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 a pretty delicate plant, which fears minimum temperatures below 15C; during late spring it can be cultivated outdoors.

Pests 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.

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