The process of propagating Spider plants is easy!
- Take a few cuttings along with the stems.
- You will notice aerial roots or small projections along the stems.
- These stems go into the soil to form proper roots. Bury horizontally but 2″ deep.
- Keep some weight over the soil to prevent stems from being exposed.
- Keep watering & wait.
- When the pups begin to grow in size, the roots have formed.
- Move wherever you want or let them grow. Soon these plants will be mature enough to form pups of their own!
If you are like me, you probably run at the sight at all house insects, the most creepy being spiders. Yet, give me a spider plant and i will give it 5 start treatment i.e. a special pot inside the home, regular water & even a few selfies, if you may! Spider plants fascinate me! Right from the way they grow to throwing out pups, how they can be easily propagated & of-course how they do well indoors.
My parents have a gorgeous spider plant growing in their garden & obviously i nicked a few pups (the small plants that the mother throws out) to grow in mine.
Here’s one happily growing indoors..
HAPPY GARDENING 🙂
