Shelob, a Chlorophytum Comosum Bonnie or Curly Spider Plant, is a modern twist on the original Spider Plant we all know and love. Native to South Africa, it's smaller than the traditional plant and has a curvy twist to each leaf, and yellow flowers instead of white.
Shelob is super easy to propagate; when you see baby spiders growing all you need to do is stick them into the soil and they’ll root in their own time – before you know it you’ll have a whole family!
Shelob, Curly Spider Plant - Small
Shelob prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
