How to Grow an Orange Spider Plant
- Fill your seed tray or pots with a mix of compost and vermiculite or horticultural sand, 50/50 is best. Moisten the soil but don’t soak it.
- Plant your spider plant seeds roughly ½ inch deep and cover them with soil.
- Cover the tray or pots with a clear plastic zip-lock bag or anything that still lets light in and creates a greenhouse-like atmosphere.
- Place your container somewhere warm but not in direct sunlight. Spider plants need warmth to germinate so find a warm spot in your house. The covering will also help to keep some warmth in.
- Keep the soil continuously moist but not soaked during the germination period.
- Germination usually starts within a couple of weeks but can be up to a month or so. Remove the plastic cover 7 days after your seedlings appear.
- Allow your seedlings to grow many true leaves before transplanting them, Spider plants are delicate seedlings that don’t like to be moved too soon.
- When they are ready to be transplanted, plant them into individual 8cm pots. Whilst still continuing to keep the soil moist but not soaked and place in non-direct sunlight.
