It looks like a baby forming to me. I don't know if they always bloom when they make a stem with a baby on the tip.

Oh yes, you can leave them alone. I remember seeing one really old spider plant at a friend's place. They just allowed the plant to grow all of those stalks, it is very nice! Just got to have a good way to display it, so it is like a cascading display of stalks and blooms.

It is just sometimes, they are too long, so I tie them like ponytails. Pretty soon you will have a nice crib of spider plant babies there! Happy growing!

Shouck65 said:Spider plants have always been one of my favorite house plants. Growing up I remember my mother having them. I've just recently started collecting different ones. All of mine are young starts, 14 so far. I would enjoy seeing and hearing about what other growers have. How about other species of Chloraphytum also? So far I only have varieties of C. Comosum, but I've seen other species that have really caught my eye also. So what do some of you have and enjoy out there?


I'd been looking for a spider plant for sometime to no avail. I finally found a nursery that had two huge ones! Although I really didn't want one that big I purchased one anyway. When I got it home and separated it out it consisted of three large mother plants, each with tons of babies. I didn't get a picture before but if you can imagine three of the one pictured in one 8 inch pot...! I've had them about a month now and all three are thriving. Sending out new shoots with even more BABIES!! I'm drowning in spider babies! Despite this, I am still on the lookout for one that isn't variegated.
