Propagating Spider Plants

Did you know that a baby spider plant is called a spiderette? I only just learned this factoid and I love it.

A few days ago I clipped a vine off my monstera to propagate a new plant, and because I’m confined to the house I figure why not try propagating more plants?? The spider plant I picked up from a friend a few months ago had a couple little spiderettes growing on it that I clipped and put in soil this week. Propagating spider plants really is that easy; clip the spiderettes off the main plant and lay them on some potting soil to root. That’s it! They can also be rooted in water but I went for the soil method as I have a big bag of it sitting in the carport. Overnight they had already sprouted little roots and were clinging to the dirt. Plants are so great.
