Spider plant

My friend gave me a spiderette and at first it wasn’t doing so well, but then I put it in a bigger pot with great drainage and she took off. She grew like crazy and even became a Momma spider plant herself! But ever since the one spiderette she’s not produced anything new. She seems to have stopped all growth. Is there something I’m not doing, do I need to prune her back?

Spider plants tend to produce more plantlets when they are rootbound, which will happen eventually as your plant engulfs its new pot. It will also help if the plant is a warm and well-lit location, is properly watered and perhaps even gets a little fertilizer.
