Your Chlorophytum comosum (Spider Plant) 'Ocean' likes a nice warm spot (18-25° C) without direct sunlight reaching the plant. Don't allow temperatures to drop below 10° C - it can withstand temperatures as low as 2° C but will then no longer grow. Also requires less water in cooler positions.
Although this spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum ‘Ocean’) is a genuine Savannah plant that grows outdoors in the sun in the wild, it is actually more sensible to keep it out of direct sunlight. The more sunlight it gets, the more you will have to water it. This plant responds well to fertiliser - which you will soon notice by its rapid growth.
Keep it somewhat dryer over the winter and only give more water in the spring, with some plant fertiliser. You can expect to see flower stalks with little white flowers appear – small and not particularly decorative. You may then get tiny plantlets appearing on the stalks.
The spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum ‘Ocean’) is a (sub) tropical plant from the Savannahs of South Africa where it appears as soon as it gets damp. All the leaf above ground dies off in the dry season and the plant survives by forming a tuber. One shower of rain is enough to get the leaves appearing above ground again. There is no necessity for the plant to go underground - a dry season need not occur - so watering it all year round is not a problem.
New studies have classified the Chlorophytum as Asparagaceae.
