Ladies I did another swap and I have all these pieces and I dont really know which end is up...
Some please tell me so I can get this potted this evening.
Ill post pics.
How do the babies go in the soil?
Do I just put the stem in my soil mix as I would anything else like my wondering jew?? Just pop it in the soil and go...??? Just feeling these stems look little different than Im use to. Idk i just got nervous and wanna make sure Im doing this correctly. .. I'd never had a spider plant I understand there very resilient but i worry..
I gave pic of the pot Im using. Im running short on medium size pots so you think this is big enough??
Not as deep as normal but its gonna drain well n could sit inside a hanging basket later is my idea..... thanks in advance! !! I appreciate all your help!!!!!

Pamela, you can just put them in the soil. Keep damp, but not soaking wet, and you'll soon have lots of spider plants. They are very forgiving and easy to grow. Baskets are wonderful for them. I had one plant for over 30 years hanging in my kitchen. We moved quite a bit, but the moves never bothered the spider plant. Good luck!

Just lay it on top of the soil if it has no roots yet, and mist everyday the leaves. Position in part sun/shade. It will eventually make roots. When you see new leaves forming from the center then it is rooting. Make your media well draining too, it grows very fat roots later so it is drought tolerant once well established. If some already has roots, even better, stick it in soil and water thoroughly but allow water to drain very well.

Here is mine before:

Chiming in with one more bit of advice, you can put several baby spider plants into one pot together. They like company. You'll have a nice lush full plant much faster if you do this.

Any that have roots, just tuck the roots into the soil. If no roots yet, just lay them on the damp soil and keep slightly moist. These are very forgiving plants. Don't worry, success is imminent!

Heya gardener's, I have a small issue or not an issue.
I didnt get around to potting these the other day and they were watered a little in ziplock bag so there was plenty of moisture. Just not much water.
Do you think everything will be fine and I should continue on as planned.
Im working on this now. Im taking a break waiting for an answer.
Thanks to everyone!!!!! Im adding pics of the baby pieces. Some did get some black leaves but the root themselves look exactly as they did days ago.. Group hug
