Spider plants are tropicals and can’t live through a northern winter, so you’ll have to bring them indoors. You can cut the outer leaves back to leave a smaller plant. In fact you should do this as part of the acclimating process: [1]
If you want to make some smaller plants, you can also cut the entire root ball into 2 or 3 pieces and repot them as new plants. [2]
