A decorative gush of green-white striped, long and thin leaves pours over the edge of the plant pot, with delicate white blossoms peeking out. The Chlorophytum comosum is a beautiful indoor plant, which is considered to be easy to maintain and fast-growing.
This undemanding plant feels well in a bright spot. Places where they get in direct contact with the sun in the morning or in the evening are just perfect. The light contributes, for example, to the development of a strong coloring of the leaves. If possible, however, the spider plant should not be exposed to the hot midday sun in the summer to make sure the leaves won’t burn.
A half-shaded spot would be all right. In a darker environment and in the shade, however, it grows only slowly. Low temperatures will slow down the growth too. The plant grows best when the room temperature is as constant as possible between 14 °C and 18 °C. This plant is very adaptable, so it can withstand temperatures between 10 °C and 30 °C.
Especially in the cold time of year, the chlorophytum comosum should be located in a room rather than outside. In the summer it also grows on the balcony or in the garden, if it is not permanently illuminated by the sun.
