Chlorophytum comosum 'Variegatum' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Chlorophytum comosum, or the Spider Plant, is a popular choice in the UK that flowers with small white blooms during the summer months. It needs to be grown indoors or in a conservatory in the UK, but if you choose you can move it outside in the warmer months of summer. A great choice for pots and containers, it also adds interest to hanging baskets as its long leaves droop outwards over the sides of the basket. It takes little skill to successfully grow.
