Description

Also called a  Spider Plant, this plant has sword-shaped green and white variegated leaves.  Plantlets will shoot from stalks.  Water the plant at least once a week, but try not to over-water it.  If the plant starts to look weak or unhealthy, add home fertilizer to the pot.  Periodically tear off brown or brittle leaves.  Tear the leaf just below the point where it is brown or brittle.  Because airplane plants can be sensitive to chemicals, use water that is distilled (rather than from the tap) if possible, along with an organic fertilizer.

Light:  Part sun to shade
