Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot For Sale Online
We took two of our best-selling houseplants and combined them into one easy-to-care-for combination.
Spider Plants and Wire Vine plants were made for each other. Spider plants send out long shoots with occasional flowers on the ends. The small flower stalks of the spider plant become pups that resemble spiders and can be planted once they produce small white roots. Both plants are easy to grow. The small leaves of the wire vine are complimented with black wire-like stems, making them great trailing plants. Both plants like bright indirect light and can endure dry soil periods between watering.

How to Care for Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot
Before you buy a Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
What type of fertilizer should I use on my Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot?
Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow-release fertilizers. Jack’s Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick-release fertilizer. When mixed with water, it will quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer that can be applied while potting and planting. Any fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants transition to a new environment.
What type of light is best for Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot?
Both plants do best when they are in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate the shade and partial direct sun, but the leaves have a habit of burning when placed in aggressive, direct sunlight. To avoid burning, turn your plant often. Doing so will allow their leaves to receive the same amount of light.
When should I water my Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot?
Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot should be watered relatively infrequently, as the plants like to dry out occasionally between watering. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs to be watered is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn’t need water, whereas a light container and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking the dry soil in a small dish or saucer can be a way to solve this problem. Do not water the foliage of these plants or overwater the soil. Doing so will lead to leaf damage or plant death. If you are unsure, it is always better to let the plant go dry instead of drenching it with water. Moisture meters are another easy way to tell if plants need to be watered and usually come with a guide to indicate what number or level of moisture different plants require. The tips of the Spider plant leaves will start to turn brown if the plant is too wet or too dry.
What are the soil and pot requirements for Spider Plant Wire Vine Combo Pot?
If you decide to pot up your Combo Pot into a larger pot, we suggest planting your newly purchased plant into a container 2 to 4 inches wider and 3 to 5 inches deeper than the container it is in currently. Use a well-draining potting mix, and be sure to disturb the roots when transplanting. We recommend adding a slow-release fertilizer to the new potting mix. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. A good rule is that you should still see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the container. Keep in mind that this new potting mix will retain more moisture than the previous container, so watering, in the beginning, should be less frequent.
