Frequently asked questions

When should I repot a spider plant?
You should repot a spider plant when it's roots have taken over the pot and start to grow out of the bottom of your pot. This is a sign they have no place in the pot any more.
When can I propagate a spider plant sprout?
You can propagate a spider plant sprout when it's roots are at least 1.5 cm (half an inch). At this size, the roots are able to absorb enough nutrients to be able to feed the plant and keep it alive.
Why is my spider plant getting brown leaves?
When your spider plant is getting brown leaves, it's getting too much water and it's dying. The best thing to do in this case it to let the soil dry out completely and then water your plant again.
Why are my spider plant's leaves turning light green?
When your spider plant's leaves are turning light green it could mean two things: It's getting too much sunlight or it needs more water. If the soil is dry, make sure to water your spider plant and if the plant is in a very bright spot, move it to a darker spot.
How much light does a spider plant need?
A spider plant needs bright and indirect light. Direct sunlight will make the leaves fade and this could dry the plant out too quickly. If you put the spider plant in a dark corner, it's leaves will turn yellow and could die soon after.
How do you make soil retain more water?
You can add a few ingredients to your soil to improve water retention: vermiculite, sphagnum (peat) moss, and coconut coir.
What is vermiculite?
Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral that's heated until it expands and forms into lightweight particles. It's a material that's naturally resistant to mold and other diseases and can hold a lot of moisture.
How can you use Sphagnum moss with houseplants?
Sphagnum moss retains a lot of moisture, so you can mix it with soil to keep it moist for longer. This helps your moisture-loving plants thrive.
