Do I Have to Cut Off the Babies on My Spider Plant?

kphetzer added on April 2, 2014 | Answered

We have a nice hanging spider plant that produces plenty of plantlets. My girlfriend keeps cutting them off to re-plant. Can they be left on and, if so, how many? I think the plant would look nice with a lot of babies hanging.

You're right -- spider plants look great with the plantlets left on. Just look at the picture on this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/spider-plant/pruning-spider-plants.htm. There's no reason to cut them off, other than to make more plants.
