The spider plant has been grown indoors for many years and is one of the most common houseplants.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

To take baby plants from the mother plant, set a small pot filled with damp potting mix next to the plant. Sink a new plantlet into the soil of the small pot, so that the root buds are barely covered. You may need to use a bent paperclip to hold the plantlet in place. It should root in 2-3 weeks. After that time, sever it from the parent plant.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

The plantlets growing on wiry stems from the mother plant - often called "babies" - are easy to propagate, giving you an ongoing supply of plants. For sure success, choose young, small plantlets for propagating because the larger plantlets are older and will root slowly.
