Spider plants are tolerant of neglect and erratic watering but respond to care with a weekly feed of something like Baby Bio added to their water. The occasional use of rain water helps too. They will grow in most positions, however if sat on a sunny windowsill the leaves may turn brown at the edges as they get scorched by the sun. So a spot where they get light but not in direct sunlight will suit them beautifully. Ideal to put in a hanging basket so the stems can cascade down, you can re-pot occasionally with any general compost.
Spider plants also add a seventies retro feel to a room when hung in a macramé plant holders. You can be creative with string and beads and make something individual and fun. They also make good presents.
