Spider Plant 'Bonnie' Description

The 'Bonnie' variety showcases vibrant green leaves with white striping, which spiral gracefully from the center of the plant. The leaves are narrow and arching, creating a lush, dense cluster. Spider Plants are known for their ability to produce numerous pups, which dangle from the mother plant on long, thin stems, resembling spiders on a web—hence the name. These pups can be easily propagated to grow new plants.

Care Plan for Spider Plant 'Bonnie'

Light: Spider Plant 'Bonnie' thrives in bright, indirect light but can also adapt well to medium and lower light conditions. However, too little light may reduce the growth rate and the vibrancy of the leaf variegation. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water this plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure thorough watering, but allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot. Spider Plants are somewhat drought-tolerant, making them forgiving if occasionally under-watered.

Humidity: While 'Bonnie' tolerates average home humidity, it enjoys higher humidity levels. If you notice brown tip on the leaves, it could be due to dry air. You can increase humidity with regular misting, using a pebble tray, or placing a humidifier nearby.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures range from 60-75°F (15-24°C). Keep the plant away from cold drafts in the winter and hot vents in the summer.

Child and Pet Safety: Spider Plants, including the 'Bonnie' variety, are non-toxic and safe for both pets and children. This makes them an excellent choice for households with curious pets or young children.

General Tips: Fertilize your Spider Plant 'Bonnie' about once a month during the spring and summer with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Prune off brown tips or damaged leaves as needed. Repot every few years or when the plant becomes root-bound.
