    good afternoon house of sunbathers...

    I am home from work, the coffee pot is doing its good works and I am about to embark on the last bit of the first pass of edits on yet another bookaroo.

    I'm like... on fire.

    how often do you water a spider plant?

    About once a week. Let the soil get close to being dry before watering, and then don't over water. They are not particularly fussy.

    Do you have a solid or variegated spider plant? I think it works well to combine the two in one pot.

    Is it one color (probably a medium green), or kind of light green with white "stripes"?

    If you have a friend who has a solid green one, or happen to see one in a nursery some time, take a couple of the "spiders" from both and pot them together. They look nice together; the dark green and the lighter green/stripes.

    I really wish I had something to set it on so it could drape like that. Mine definitely looks like the one at the bottom on the right.

    A lot of people hang them.

    Spider plants are suppose to be really good for the air for some reason. I might be mistaken, but I think they can even be used to remove radon gas from a house (if someone has a bunch of them).

    Cats sometimes like them. They are not toxic, but you don't really want them eating them.

    Plant some oats for the cats!
