Want to grow more houseplants for free? Wait until you see how easy it is to propagate a spider plant in water.
Fill a mason jar or vase with fresh clean water. But give it about an hour for the water to come to room temperature and dechlorinate before dropping your baby spider plant in.
Cut a healthy and mature spider plant stem that has a spiderette with a pair of scissors or garden snips. Leave a few inches of the stolon.
Drop the spiderette in the jar but don’t allow any leaves to sit in the water.
Move the jar with your new spider plant to a location with indirect sunlight.
Change the water when it gets murky and give it some time for roots to form. When you have a good grouping of roots, remove the new spider plant from the water.
When the roots are about 2-3 inches long, you can transfer the spider plant to a pot with an indoor potting mix that is well-draining. Gently remove the stem from the water and plant it in well-drained soil, covering the roots completely.
Water the soil and keep it in bright indirect sunlight.
