Spider Plant “Ocean”

Chlorophytum Comosum Ocean in Germany

The Spider plant is a very popular houseplant due to the fact that it is virtually indestructible.  This plant is perfect for a novice gardener because it is so easy to care for.  It has also been noted as one of the best plants for removing toxins from the air in a famous NASA study.  The plant also produces shoots with mini plants on the end which can be easily propagated.  Propagating these could result in a never ending supply of these plants, and also could make thoughtful gifts.
