List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Spider plant forms long runners bearing plantlets that are best displayed in a hanging pot. Best growth occurs in medium light intensity and any good potting soil. Keep the soil moderately moist and temperatures above 45 degrees. Ideal temperatures are between 55 and 70 degrees. Plantlets form when spider plant receives short days and long, uninterrupted nights for at least three weeks. After three weeks the plant may be moved into a room which is lit in the evening. Heavily fertilized plants may not form as many plantlets. The leaf tips turn brown for various reasons. Various cultural or environmental factors probably cause the browning.

Propagation is by division, starting the plantlets or seeds.
