Hi,

I am planning on potting my spiderettes and donating them to a fundraiser this summer. I was wondering if one spiderette per pot would make a full-looking/leafy adult spider plant? Or would it be better if I put 2-3 spiderettes per pot? I tried looking it up but found no answer so hopefully someone here can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

How big are your pots? And how big are the plantlets? Spider plants grow fast, but I am not sure that one plant baby will fill out enough by this summer to give a good impression if the pot is larger than about 4 inches in diameter.

That said, my mother plant is three feet wide and three feet tall. Some of the plantlets on my spider plant could easily be potted up in a one gallon pot...

The pots are 4" and the plantlets are roughly 2" right now. I was more wondering what they would look like as mature plants. Would they fill out enough to be a nice plant for someone who bought them if I only put one plantlet in each pot? For my personal plants I've always put 3-4 plantlets but since this is for charity I was hoping I could put one plant per pot so there will be more of them to sell, but I don't want to do that if it will give whoever buys it a wimpy looking mature plant lol.

The mother plant is equally as large as yours but I remove the plantlets yearly and have given them away to friends in the past so I always put 3-4 babies in one pot. So, more or less wanting to know if I can get by with one per pot or if I'd be "ripping off" the person buying the plant if I did that.

As mature plants I think they would look fine. They'll just take a while to fill out. Still, to be safe I think I'd go with two plantlets just so people feel the purchase was "multiple plants in each pot".
