Question

Hi there. I have just recently bought a new home, and I'm trying to bring it to life. I have a bunch of herbs in my garden that I'm trying to identify, by my main thing now is...I bought a spider plant this am, and it's got alot of plantlets already. How do I know where to cut them to start new plants? I know I should know this, it's probably common sense, but I've never really had plants before, other than vegetables, and I want to do this right. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Melodie

Hi Melbas,

You can either cut those plantlets off and put them in water until the roots grow longer, or you can peg them down in a little pot with potting soil. Some have long enough roots so you can cut them from the plant and put them directly in potting soil.

Cool spider plants

Thanks so much. I also went to the library and checked out Taylor's Encyclopedia of Container Plants, which has alot of info for those who are new to this.

Thanks again,

Melodie
