Plant Care Guide: Spider Plant

Spider Plant // Chlorophytum Comosum

The Spider Plant (or Ribbon Plant) is known for her long, luscious, cascading leaves. A true beginner's bestie - adaptability is her middle name. Plus, she's great with pets and purifies the air while she's at it, making her one of the best Fronds we know.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
This gal makes a great plant pick for your bedroom, purifying the air while you sleep. And you can avoid brown tips by misting your spider plant and not letting her soil dry out completely.
