White Spider Plant

Anonymous added on July 17, 2011 | Answered

Bought a spider plant that had white in the middle of the leaf and green on each side. Well, it was beautiful but some of the leaves are looking burned. Don't have this problem with all green spider plants or the green in the middle spider plants. Is it too much sun? I went and bought another. Please help. I have around 40 houseplants and can't understand this problem.

Brown tips or tip burn can occur when the soil is kept too dry or hard/fluorinated water is used. Spider plants are sensitive to fluoride which can be present in low-grade fertilizer and city tap water; to avoid this problem use rain water and a good quality fertilizer. Overfertilization can also cause brown tips.
