The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is an easy-care houseplant that thrives in mineral substrate. Here is a short care guide for a spider plant in mineral substrate:

  1. Location : Place the spider plant in a bright location, but protected from direct sunlight. A window with indirect sunlight is ideal.
  2. Temperature : The spider plant thrives best at temperatures between 15°C and 25°C. It is tolerant of occasional temperature fluctuations.
  3. Watering : Keep the substrate evenly moist, but avoid waterlogging. Only water when the top layer of soil dries out slightly. In general, it is better to water too little than too much, as the spider plant tolerates drought better than excessive moisture. We recommend watering with 1/3 water over the substrate and 2/3 over the water tank.
  4. Fertilizing : Fertilize the plant every 4-6 weeks with a balanced houseplant fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing in autumn and winter.
  5. Humidity : Spider plants do not require high humidity, but do well in normal room conditions. Occasionally misting the leaves can help remove dust and keep the plant looking fresh.
  6. Leaf care : Regularly remove discolored or dead leaves to keep the plant healthy.
  7. Propagation : You can propagate the spider plant by dividing the roots or removing offshoots (young plant offshoots).
  8. Pests and diseases : Spider plants are generally resistant to pests. If they do occur, remove them manually or treat the plant with an insecticide. Watch for signs of root rot and react early to maintain the plant's health.

If you follow these care tips, your spider plant will thrive healthily and beautifully in mineral substrate.
