|Hi, I'm looking for a baby HAWAIIAN Spider Plant. It does not have to be rooted or planted in a pot. Will happily pay for it and shipping. I hope this is appropriate in this forum. I can't see why it wouldn't be. Also looking for an all green Bonnie Curly Spider Plant. Please forgive me and just delete if I have done something wrong!! Please feel free to tree-mail me, if you prefer not to post publicly. |

|I have found a beautiful Hawaiian Spider Plant Speciman, with loads of babies, so this post can be deleted of you so choose. Thank you for putting up with me. :)|

|Alan...what is a Hawaiian Spider Plant? Do you have a picture?|
It's all about choices.

|Good morning Carol,|
From what I've read, It is supposedly rare. The green blades are wider at the base. The picture I have, is of mine, a small plant, so the blades don't look that big yet, look like a normal spider plant. But one thing I do notice is, the pups are almost white with a dark green strip just on the edges of the leaves. As the plant gets older, the inner blade on the plants is a somewhat yellow/green, not quite variegated look. Here is a picture of my plant and it's babies, again, very young so full characteristics of the older plants is not showing up yet. But the pups definitely show the characteristics of the Hawaiian Spider Plant. Also this is under my green fiberglass roof, so everything appears greener than it is. The babies are almost snow white with that green stripe on edges of leave. Again, they darken as they get older. This will do quite well growing on my patio in the back yard. I've grown one before, but it was destroyed by a monsoon storm several years ago. Finally found this one and ordered it. My old one, on very chilly nuts the hummers would land in the center of it to stay warm. It was probably 3 feet in diameter, HUGE!
There are some really great pictures of one at this link:
Once it gets a little more mature, I will be happt to share some pups if someone wants some.

|Interesting info Alan. I have the regular green one growin in the ground. Pretty tough plant.|
Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing

|That IS interesting. I have a variegated one that sort of came with the house (previous owner abandoned the poor thing) and it produced a baby that is all green, which in turn is now producing green babies. Which is kind of cool, since I'd been wanted an all green one.|
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
