Spider Plants

Does anyone know why these red spots are invading my spider plants and making their leaves shrivel? I tried cutting the affected areas off but it's just getting worse, they barely have any healthy leaves left.

This is, typically, a sign of overwatering. These are somewhat drought tolerant, and will like their soil to dry out between waterings. You should sprinkle a little wettable sulfur onto the soil before the next watering, and this will help clear things up a bit.
