Pot up a rooted ‘spi­der­let’

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

A few weeks ago I no­ticed that one of the baby ‘spi­der­lets’ from our kitchen spider plant had been knocked off its run­ner.

I popped it into a jar of wa­ter and it soon started to take root – the eas­i­est form of plant prop­a­ga­tion there is!

The roots are now ro­bust enough to take pot­ting up in con­tainer com­post. Sim­ply place the plant in a clean pot and cover the roots with fresh house­plant com­post.

Firm it in, wa­ter it and place your new plant on a light win­dowsill.

Spider plants are one of the eas­i­est plants to prop­a­gate
