How do you picture Hawaiian Spider Plant?  Maybe you envision its slim, elongated leaves mirroring an arachnid’s legs as they grow tall and then curve downward as a spider? Or perhaps you see its variegated foliage, painted with segments of cream and chartreuse, as a cluster of multicolored satin ribbons fluttering in the wind? Either way, this tropical perennial is unique and attractive. This lovely evergreen originates from Africa, and is also known as Chlorophytum comosum, Spider Plant 'Hawaiian', Spider Ivy, Spider Plant, Ribbon Plant, and Airplane Plant. It looks great planted in a hanging pot with its plantlets draped about, and yields small but splendid ivory blooms. With all these traits, this lovely house plant will offer color and charm to any home or office for years to come.

Best Locations For Growing Hawaiian Spider Plant

Hawaiian Spider Plant thrives in bright indirect light, temperatures ranging between 70-90°F, and humidity levels ranging between 40% to 80%. And? Since this lovely house plant is nontoxic to people and pets, you won’t have to worry about little hands or paws coming into contact with this hybrid.

Hawaiian Spider Plant Sunlight Requirements

Hawaiian Spider Plant prefers bright, indirect light. Any room with south-facing, west-facing or east-facing windows will suffice; however, during any periods of direct light, it is wise to place this lovely house plant a few feet away from any windows to prevent its leaves from being sunburned.

Hawaiian Spider Plant Care

A 4-inch or 6-inch pot is a good-sized starter home for your Hawaiian Spider Plant. It prefers aerated, well-draining soil with a neutral pH. To promote growth and avert fungal disease, use a good houseplant potting soil amended with peat moss and perlite/coco coir.

While Hawaiian Spider Plant does not require frequent pruning, dead leaves should be trimmed in order to promote growth and prevent disease. To promote bushier growth, remove the offsets. This will enable the plant to use more of its resources for growth versus reproduction. 

This slow-growing hybrid will normally need to be repotted only every two to three years, preferably at the beginning of the growing season in spring. Simply repot your Hawaiian Spider Plant in a pot that is one to two inches bigger than the old pot. Also, if you love your Hawaiian Spider Plant so much that you want it to multiply, you can propagate this hybrid using offsets or seeds.

Watering Hawaiian Spider Plant

Hawaiian Spider Plant only requires watering when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil are dry to the touch. During the growing season, you will typically need to water this hybrid once or twice each week but less frequently during the dormant period of fall and winter.

Feeding Hawaiian Spider Plant

Feed your Hawaiian Spider Plant a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer biweekly except during this plant’s dormant period, or winter months. Watch, however, for leaves that are turning brown. This may be an indication of over-fertilizing. Fertilize sparingly to avoid chemically damaging this plant’s foliage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
