What are the soil and pot requirements for Spider Plants?
We suggest planting your newly purchased Spider Plants into a container 2″-4″ wider in diameter, and 3″-5″ 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. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to 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.
When should I water my Spider Plants?
Spider Plants 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 very heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn’t need water, whereas a light container and limp foliage means 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 useful way to solve this problem. It is important not to water the foliage of these plants, or to over-water them as this will lead to leaf damage or plant death. If you’re 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 leaves of the Spider Plants will start to turn brown if the plant is kept either too wet or too dry.
What type of fertilizer should I use for my Spider Plants?
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 that is mixed with water to 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 type of fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants with the transition to a new environment. Fertilizing Spider Plants will actually discourage them from flowering and producing pups.
What type of light is best for Spider Plants?
We recommend thoroughly watering your plant, but avoid making the soil too soggy which leads to root rot. Allow your Spider plant to dry out between watering. Brown leaf tips indicates fluoride is in the water, but can be fixed. Simply sit your water out the night before watering your Spider plant again.
