Description

Chlorophytum laxum or Saint Bernard's Lily is a house plant with long slender archig leaves with white banding down the center or on the margins of the leaves.  The roots are fleshy and it has tiny 6-petaled white flowers that rarely appear.It is often confused with Spider Plant (C. comomosum).

The slender, arching leaves are dark green with a creamy white stripe. Leaves grow from a central crown and can reach up to 1 ft (30 cm) long. Give this plant plenty of light for the best leaf color. Plants grown in low light may lose their variegation..

Environment

Chlorophytum needs a normal, moist, sandy loam soil and should be best in indirect sunlight. They like plenty of water, between spring and summer. In the winter they should need a lot less. Avoid too much hot air as this will affect the leaves. Spraying a water mist in the summer will help.

Landscape Use

Spider plants look best in hanging baskets or on tall stands or pedestals to show off their trailing foliage.

Foliage plants in general need access to bright indirect sunlight. Avoid keeping them in direct sunlight as it can cause leaves to burn due to extreme sunlight in the afternoon.

Make sure watering is done once the soil goes dry. Although the soil can remain moist, but it should not turn soggy/wet. Having drainage hole in the pots goes a long way in ensuring there is no water stagnating on top of the soil. You can spray the plant occasionally.

Fertilise the plant once a month in summers however Don't feed any fertiliser in winters. Giving fertiliser to the plant ensures nutrients going in which keeps it healthy. Keep an eye on the leaves of the plant to know any symptoms for watering or sunlight.
