Q.Leggy Stem On Spider Plants

Zone Buhl, Minnesota 55713 | Anonymous added on July 16, 2023 | Answered

I became ill and my plants suffered too. I even lost my beautiful Purple Passion plant. My question relates to the green Spider Plants. The stems are long and leggy. Can I cut them off below a node and reroot them? I do have one that is shooting out aerial stems.

It looks like it is being overwatered. Let the soil dry out between watering. Then it should leaf out more and look fuller.

You may be able to snap off the one in the front that has a root starting to grow and put it in the same pot or a separate pot.
