'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.

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.
