Which House Plant Are You Least Likely To Kill?

You got: Spider Plant

Also known as: Chlorophytum Comosum • Light requirements: Spider plants prefer bright light for maximum growth but will still flourish in indirect and fairly low amounts of light. • Watering schedule: Regularly, but not so much water so that the soil it soggy (the roots can rot this way). • Why it's perfect for you: It's hard to mess up taking care of a spider plant, and if you do it right you'll be rewarded with little babies (spiderettes) sprouting up all over the place for you to start new plants or give to friends.
