Botanical name: Chlorophytum
Spider plants (Chlorophytum)

Description

Spider plants comprise a large genus of evergreen tropical and subtropical flowering plants. They have long and slender leaves, fleshy tuberous roots, and often produce small white flowers. They reproduce vegetatively through plantlets, which immediately take root upon touching the ground. Some spider plants make popular houseplants and are commonly found in hanging pots.

Species of Spider plants

Spider plant 'Variegatum'

Spider plant 'Variegatum'

Spider plant 'Variegatum' is a very popular cultivar of one of the most popular houseplants on earth, the spider plant. This cultivar's distinguishing characteristic is its variegated leaves, which are white or cream-colored along their edges and deep green in their middles. This variety is also on the smaller side, compared to other spider plants. The interesting leaves and low maintenance make spider plant 'Variegatum' a great houseplant.
Chlorophytum saundersiae 'Starlight'

Chlorophytum saundersiae 'Starlight'

Chlorophytum saundersiae 'Starlight' is cultivated from Saunder's spider plant and named for its small white blooms. It is similar in appearance to the parent plant, but there is a difference. Unlike spider plants that can’t withstand freezing temperatures, a starlight plant is cultivated for hardiness. The plant can stay outside all year, even in freezing temperatures.
Variegated Spider Plant

Variegated Spider Plant

You could excuse yourself for accidentally mistaking the variegated Spider Plant with its very close cultivar-cousin, C. comosum 'variegatum'. Both are spider plant cultivars with variegated (two-toned) leaves. Variegated Spider Plant, though, is distinguished by sporting a thick white or cream stripe down its middle, while having dark green along its edges. This cultivar is also the larger of the two similar-looking plants. The variegated leaves can help brighten up shady areas in the garden.
Chlorophytum Comosum ‘Ocean’

Chlorophytum Comosum ‘Ocean’

Chlorophytum Comosum ‘Ocean’ is cultivated from the Spider plant genus. It has wide, shorter variegated leaves, which sets it apart from other plants in the family. Its unique foliage and star-shaped white flowers make the cultivar a popular houseplant.

Spider plant

The spider plant is a green perennial plant with long, thin leaves that earn it another name, "ribbon plant." It has spread far from its native Africa because it is easy to care for. Since spider plants grow well in partial or full shade, they have become popular houseplants.
Spider plant 'Lemon'

Spider plant 'Lemon'

Spider plant 'Lemon' is a Spider plant cultivar selected to have lemon-yellow foliage, which is how the cultivar got its name. Although its leaves seem solid at first glance, they are actually variegated—each bright green leaf is adorned with a faint, inconspicuous stripe.
Spider plant

Spider plant

Spider plant (Chlorophytum capense) is a perennial herb related to asparagus. In nurseries, the spider plant is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Chlorophytum capense, because the spider plant's latin name is Chlorophytum comosum. Spider plant grows in California within the United States.
