Now wait a minute - I know the spider lilly as belonging to the
Amaryllidaceae under the name of Hymenocallis occidentalis and it grows in
the SE part of the US.

Spider Plant on the other hand belongs to the Liliaceae and is called
Chlorophytum comosum.  This is an indoor plant here in Denmark.  I usually
wait until it blooms during the winter time and then the plant starts to
develop new plants on long shoots.  Those I cut off and put into a glass of
water until I see roots develop.  Then put it into a pot and done.
