The Spider Plant (Chlorophytun Cosmum) drifts in and out of style every few years. With its attractive colouring and variegation, this variety has a natural affinity for bright, minimal interiors. As well as being low maintenance, Spider Plants are famous for their easy propagation.


Simply pot-up the spider-like plantlets that appear after flowering. In Polish folklore, the appearance of fresh white flowers on a Spider Plant was said to be an omen of a coming wedding or a birth.
