4" Pot Spider Plant

Product Description

Common Name: Spider Plant

Scientific Name: Chlorophytum comosum  

-Care Recommendations By The Dude-

Best for These Animals: Small lizards, snakes frogs, and other small amphibians and reptiles.

Bio Dude Substrates: Terra Flora, Terra Fauna, Terra Firma

Soil Depth: Shallow to moderate; allow to dry out between waterings. Can also be used in hanging baskets or as mountings where pockets or enclaves of soil are present.

Lighting:  Low to moderate, or bright indirect light. Do not place under basking light or heat lamp.

Humidity & Misting: Prefers humidity above 50 percent but can also do with drier conditions.  Water frequently, but allow to dry out between waterings. Does best with rainwater, reverse osmosis, or distilled water. Tap water may contain certain chemicals which the plant can be sensitive to over time.  

Mature Plant Size & Root System: Individual plants are less than a foot in height and width, however, plants can "clump" out or form "spiderettes" (baby spider plants) at the end of their stems.  Their stems will then naturally bend over to try and find soil for the spiderettes to take root. Spiderettes can be cut or popped off the stem and rooted out.  Root system is shallow to moderate, and likes to dry out between waterings.

Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: Can tolerate temperatures from the high 50's to the 90's, but prefers a temperature range from 60 - 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of its long, overhanging stems and leaves, it's usually best placed away from doors or openings.  It can also be placed in hanging baskets or as a mounting in a large pocket or enclave of soil.

Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Spider plants are non-toxic to humans and animals.  However, most reptiles and amphibians will not usually eat spider plant.  

Pot Size & Packaging: A single 4" potted spider plant shipped wrapped in newspaper.
