Could you post a picture of the plant so we can get a better idea of its condition?

The leaf discoloration is due to inconsistent watering. The pot is quite large for the root system at this point so it is easy to keep the soil and roots too wet. Let the top half inch or so of soil dry before watering thoroughly. If your local tap water is on the hard side, use filtered or distilled water.

I agree with Will. That sort of thing happens to spider plants which are either over watered, underwatered, over fertilized or if there's a build up of minerals in the soil from your water source. In such a case it would need to be flushed with filtered or rain water.
... At first I thought bacterial blight. Since the brown tips would indicate such a thing. But now I'm not so sure. I don't see any yellowing on the sides of the leaves. You might want to remove the damaged leaves though, to be on the safe side.
