‘Atlantic’ plant is a smaller, more compact spider plant variety with slightly broader and shorter leaves than other, more common spider plants. The leaves are white in the middle gradually blending into green with dark green leaf edges. The plants will eventually produce long stems (runners) with “baby” plants attached that can be removed and propagated to get new plants. ‘Atlantic’ is a good plant to grow in a hanging basket or to set on a shelf or plant stand where the baby “spiderettes” can dangle freely. Outdoors use it with flowering annuals to create a colorful mixed planter or window box.
Easy to grow indoors or outdoors. Looks great grown in containers and hanging baskets. Potted Chlorophytum plants can be grown outdoors in the summer and brought back inside when temperatures are expected to fall below 50 degrees F (10 degrees C). Can be grown outdoors year-round in frost-free climates; grow it in a pot or in the ground.
