If you keep your plants in proper condition, you will soon notice spider ‘babies’ forming on your spider plant. These babies look like little miniature spider plants suspended from a longer branch of the plant. These can easily be cultivated into new plants.
Spider plants enjoy natural light, but not direct sunlight. You should place your plants near a window but not directly in them, as this will cause browning of the leaves.
Water liberally through the summer. Mist occasionally. During winter, cut the frequency of waterings back.
Treat your spider plant with a bit of houseplant fertilizer from time to time, using half the recommended strength. Spider plants are sensitive and need only a bit of fertilizer to stay healthy. You can even do without the fertilizer if your plants are looking well.
