Chlorophytum (Spider Plants) are native to South Africa. Beautiful houseplants and easy to grow, Chlorophytum are one of the best natural air filters for your home. Attractive leaves grow to 2 feet long with pups (new plantlets) hanging from mature plants. Just pluck off the pup to start a new plant. Your customers may like Chlorophytum because it’s hard to kill, so it’s an excellent starter plant for new gardeners or those lacking a green thumb. Chlorophytum likes living in a pot, it doesn’t mind drying out between waterings, and it enjoys cooler temperatures, down to 55 degrees.

Growing Tips

Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage of fertilizer until well rooted.

For best results with Chlorophytum, we recommend using a well-drained soil with a balanced fertilizer and a constant feed program of 200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.5 - 6.5.


Chlorophytum do not require pinching.


Chlorophytum should be spaced adequately to allow airflow and light penetration between the foliage. Usually 2’ centers on baskets will be enough.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are unnecessary with Chlorophytum.


Chlorophytum do not generally attract pests, but watch for whiteflies, mites, and mealybugs.


Spider Variegated are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Spider Variegated Liners

  1. We recommend planting 3 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. No pinching is required. Watch these plants grow and delight your customers!

Unrooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
