Spider plant trimming

Zone 8 | misspawleys added on August 3, 2012 | Answered

My spider plant had babies earlier in the summer. There are none now. Many streamers have long brown stems with brown leaves and bright green stripped leaves at the bottom. It is full, but there lots of brown stems show. Should these be cut at the base and just ignore the few leaves on the tip? I live in SC and the plant is on the screen porch.

I would definitely cut back the brown "streamers" along with the brown leaves.
