What is the reason why the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are weak?

The leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are soft and weak, which is the root rot caused by inability to absorb nutrients or excessive ponding.

Note: Reverse variegated spider plants has a scientific name, chlorophytum comosum variegatum.

The reason why the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are weak and the roots rot is that it cannot absorb nutrients.

We can cut off rotten roots and replant them after disinfection.

This problem may also be caused by the environment being too dry.

Therefore, we can spray water around the flowerpot to increase the humidity of the air.

However, if there is excessive water in the flowerpot, it will also make the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) soft.

At this point, we need to stop watering.

We should wait until the basin soil is dry before watering it properly.

Causes of leaf weakness of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum)

The reason why the leaves of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are weak may be caused by root rot.

If the roots of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) rot, it will lead to insufficient nutrient supply.

Therefore, its leaf growth will become weak and soft.

At this time, we need to trim the rotten roots on the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum).

After sterilization, we can replant it into new soil.

In summer, the temperature is high and the water evaporation is fast.

If the growth environment of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) is too dry and the air humidity is not enough, the leaf water will evaporate excessively.

This will cause the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to gradually soften and even break from the middle.

At this time, we need to spray water around the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum).

This can increase the humidity of the air and replenish the water on the leaf surface.

Reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) has poor waterlogging resistance.

If we can’t dilute too much chlorine, then we can’t water too much at one time.

For a long time, ponding will occur at the root of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum).

If the roots of reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) rot, the leaves will appear soft collapse.

At this point, we need to stop watering.

We can wait until the soil is completely dry, and then add water step by step.

Reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) are suitable for growing in an environment with sufficient light.

If reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) grow in an environment without light for a long time, the leaves cannot carry out photosynthesis normally.

In this way, the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) will become very wilted.

At this time, we need to transfer the reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) to a bright outdoor place for maintenance.

We should give all-weather light to reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum), so that reverse variegated spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum variegatum) can resume growth as soon as possible.
