These South African natives have crept their way across the world into the homes of plant lovers everywhere. The foliage of the Spider Plant is what gives it its common name, seen sprawled and hanging like spiders legs. Surviving in less than ideal conditions, the Spider Plant works wonderfully for those constantly on the go, or starting off their plant journey. If you’re interested in trying out propagation, starting with the Spider Plant will help you learn the process with ease. Each mother plant will produce shoots that grow new baby plants on the ends that can be potted up to start anew.
