Spider plant, also sometimes called airplane plant, is a houseplant that's withstood the tests of time. As popular today as it was generations ago, spider plant is wonderfully easy to grow. It thrives in bright light, but tolerates low light. It doesn't mind being watered frequently, but it can a while without water and still look good.
Spider plant is typically grown in hanging baskets because of its gracefully arching leaves and stems that jet from the plant and carry baby plantlets on it. It grows just as beautifully in traditional containers on mantles, in windowsills, and on tabletops, though.
