Spider Plant

Spider Plants are popular houseplants recognized for their air-purifying abilities and striking foliage. Although there are various spider plants available, the most common ones typically exhibit thin and narrow green leaves with distinctive white stripes. The leaves gracefully arch downwards, making an attractive display of greenery in hanging baskets. The plant forms plantlets (AKA baby plants) at the end of long and wiry flower stems, which dangle and give a spider-like appearance – hence the name Spider Plants or Airplane Plants.
