How to grow spider plant in a garden

  1. Choose a shaded spot in the garden and prepare the planting area well by digging in compost & Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
  2. Dig a hole in the prepared area, place the plant in the bottom of the planting hole, gently backfill around the plant’s root ball with soil then water well.
  3. Reapply Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser around the root zone every 8 weeks from spring until mid autumn to promote good soil health.
  4. Mulch with an organic mulch, such as bark chips, sugar cane or pea straw and water in well. Do not over water them as they don’t like wet feet.

     


How to grow spider plant in a pot

  1.  Choose a pot or hanging basket with good drainage. Position in indoors in low to bright indirect light or outdoors in dappled shade.
  2. Fill chosen pots with quality potting mix, such as Yates Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter.
  3. Plant into pot and water in well. Apply Yates Thrive All Purpose Liquid Plant Food every fortnight from spring to autumn to promote healthy plants with lush foliage growth.
  4. Do not overwater, feel the soil, if it feels dry then water it.

Growing tips

  • To help the potting mix and root zone stay moist, potted spider plants can be gently and briefly immersed into a tub of water every month .

  • Dust the leaves regularly by wielding a small brush. Dust can clog up the pores of the leaves and make it difficult for the leaves to function.
