Despite their creepy-crawly name, spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum) are among the most popular houseplants to grow. These hardy plants will survive less-than-perfect conditions, and they are stunning when you can mimic their native tropical environment. These plants grow slender, gently arching leaves that can stretch from around 1 to 1.5 feet long on average. The leaves can be green or striped green and white. Mature plants regularly send out long stems that bear small, star-shaped flowers. Once the flowers fall off, tiny plantlets form in their place, which ultimately grow their own roots. Spider plants can typically be planted at any time as long as they are not exposed to frost. They have a moderate growth rate.
