Many have seen these kinds of plants but they’re usually seen in hanging baskets or pots. The idea of using them for ground cover is novel. The thing about spider plants is that you get offshoots which can be cut and will grow into new plants. It’s relatively easy to grow them and to start new ones from these.
- Spider plants with their long, slender, trailing leaves, look a bit like green spiders. They are easy to care for and great for for beginning gardeners.
- Spider plants are usually grown in hanging baskets but are also used as excellent ground cover in warmer climate gardens.

“Spider plant babies can be snipped off the stolons and will grow as independent plants.”
