The Q&A Archives: spider plant

Question: How did I stop spider plants from taking over with their roots?

Answer: Spider plants really do have tough and invasive roots. Sometimes they remind me of bamboo! The best way to keep them from taking over the garden is to contain them with a barrier as you would for bamboo, or simply dig them up and repot them into nursery pots. You can sink the pots into the ground so the plants look like they're planted and no one will know the difference.
