Spider plant care

Zone Meriden, Ct. | Anonymous added on May 24, 2017 | Answered

I had 3 separate plants in one pot. Two of them all of a sudden turned pale and then withered and died. I transplanted the remains one into a smaller pot. The living one had more and longer roots I noticed. I had recently moved the plant from a darker living room to a brighter room. I would like to know why the 2 died so suddenly. What did I do wrong

Your Spider Plant need a bright but indirect sunlight location.
Water only when the soil is dry. Too much water can cause the plant to decline and even suffer root rot.
Spiders can also be sensitive to conditioned water. Using distilled water can be appreciated by a Spider Plant.

It is a good idea to remove the off shoots into there own pots as they can put a strain on the parent plant. Reminds me of motherhood!
