    This plant has lovely curly leaves, but I don't think that it grows and multiplies as quickly as the common C. Comosum. All chrolorophytums look great in hanging baskets.

    'Bonnie' is a form of Variegated Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum 'Variegatum') with more tightly curled foliage. It grows in the same manner sending out arching stems tipped with baby "spiders". Likes bright light.
