Watering is best done when the topsoil is starting to feel dry to the touch. Spider Plant Chlorophytum 'Bonnie' should be watered when the soil begins to feel dry. This plant prefers to stay on the dry side, so be sure to not over-water it. Aim to water it once a week in the summer and once every two weeks during the winter.


Spider plants (Chlorophytum 'Bonnie') prefer bright, indirect light, meaning that they should receive 4 to 6 hours of bright light from a south-facing window each day, preferably in the morning. If you're growing your spider plant indoors, you may also want to use artificial light to supplement the natural light available. Spider plants can tolerate low levels of light for short periods of time and even thrive partially in the shade, but excessive shade (less than 4 hours of sunlight) and direct sunlight can eventually cause yellowing of the leaves. Keep the spider plant out of direct, afternoon sunlight.


Before you start pruning, be sure to equip yourself with the appropriate tools for the job, such as a pair of garden shears or scissors. Remember to always sterilize your tools with isopropyl alcohol to avoid spreading any diseases. Spider Plant Chlorophytum 'Bonnie' should be pruned once a year in late spring or early summer. Pruning should be light, removing any yellowed or damaged leaves, as well as any long stems that are beginning to droop. It's also a good idea to trim back any long or straggly stems that are not producing any leaves or flowers. Pruning should be done before the plant starts to flower for the year, as this will give the plant enough time to form new growth before the next flowering season.

I bought my spider plant because I thought it was cool. Brought it home, left it in a shady room. Thought I was “taking care” of it by watering it. It started to wilt and look really sick. I thought it was dead, so I almost dumped it in My yard and put something else in the beautiful pot. But I instead, just stuck it outside in the elements. Again, I thought this plant was dead. A couple months later, it was thriving! I’m so thankful I didn’t just dump it. It’s now hanging In my kitchen. It’s given me 3 Babies!
