Spider Plant
In the House

(Chlorophytum comosum)

This plant gets its name from its spider-like appearance and its spiderettes or “babies” that dangle from the mother plant like little spiders on a web. The spiderettes start out as small, white flowers. Once it develops roots, the spiderette can be planted to start a whole new colony of spider plants. Spider plants have solid green or variegated leaves, and they are good for clearing impurities from indoor air.

Representing the element air, these plants absorb negativity while improving and lifting the energy of your home. Hang one wherever you feel energy has gotten bogged down. A plant with many babies symbolizes fertility and abundance. Hang it in the bedroom if you are planning on a pregnancy, or root one of the babies in its own pot and place it next to your bed. Hang a spider plant in a kitchen window to invite prosperity into your home.

Winter Wellness with Thyme

A steaming cup of herbal tea is just right for warming up on a cold January night. Thyme is also perfect for adding a flavor of summer to meals and for fighting colds.
