I'm going to send in my info but I have a question someone on here may be able to answer.

I've been looking for a particular house plant at local garden centers & I don't know the name of. Its a plain greenery plant, no flowers but it has these tendrals that grow out around the pot that look like hairy spider legs. I know the common name has something to do with spiders but I cant remember it. Is anyone familiar with this plant that could tell me the name?

The plant that you're thinking of is called Spider Plant
I don't know what you're trying to figure out, but wikipedia has an article about it

Nope thats not it. I have a spider plant. This plant literally looks like it has a live spider living in it with little hairy black/brown legs growing out of it. They are really ugly.

this is the closest thing I could find but the tendrils are black & grow close to the pot not in the leaves like this one

i've got a call out to my hubby right now.  we just saw one of those plants last week with the pink "cattails" in it.  Of course, i can't think of the name of it so i called him since he has a very good memory.  hopefully he will call back soon.  i love it in pink but i don't know about black and looking like a real spider.  i would be afraid all him friends might come.  lol.
