Spider plants are great plants for beginners because they will be smart to survive neglect. For lighting, these plants like shady areas when placed outdoors, but they will like indirect bright light when indoors because direct light will scorch the leaves. If you leave them out in the sun, they will live, but the leaves will look paler and have slower growth.

You also need to pay attention to the placement of spider plants for maximum growth. Place in a warm and humid area with temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Don't keep the humidity too low as this will brown the leaves.





When it comes to watering, spider plants prefer moist but not soggy soil. Avoid over-watering this plant as it will cause root rot and kill the plant. 

Watering is one of the things that must be considered for the care of all plants because if it is not right it will cause many problems. To keep it moist, you can put it in a tray filled with water and gravel.
