My plant has been doing fantastic for five years. I only used a drip waterer for 3 months when I had to work out of state on a consulting contract. It was a customizable one so I can tailor the amount of water using a 6 gallon container full of distilled water. I came back and all my plants were in great shape, all had grown tremendously. My silver pothos is now 12 feet long with gigantic leaves! They love the light, they love their food and they love the water. I have raised many spider plants in the past one of which was about five times the size of this one!
This fella is doing great now. Seems to be adjusting and has already sprouted a new flower stalk. Three others are in full flower. This thing has been constantly in flower for the last 2 years. Spiderettes are quite large, 6 to 8 inch leaves on many. I cut six of them off to grow new plants and take a little burden off of this one.
My house remains in the 60s temperature wise all year round, this window faces east, and the 20% humidity doesn't seem to bother the plants at all. Any other room in the house, only succulents grow and an Aussie tree varietal.
I move the shutters during the day. I only have them cracked until the sun moves overhead and the direct sunlight doesn't hit the plants anymore. At this altitude in Colorado, sunlight can increase UV compared to lower altitudes, and heating effects by 10 to 15 degrees on both human and plant. I've been sunburned in 35 degree weather wearing shorts.
