Spider plant babies
I am planning an activity with a Girl Scout troop. We are planning on harvesting babies from a spider plant, re-potting them, and giving them to teachers to keep in the classroom (to help clear the air so students can think better.)
Every thing I see online says to put them in water, or put them in dirt and leave them attached to the big plant, until roots develop.
Since this is a one day workshop, both of those approaches will be challenging. Is there a way we can plant them in dirt, but not keep them attached to the big plant? Or will they just die?
Also, what is the basic care of a spider plant? The girls will be making cards with instructions to include with the plants.
Thanks for your help!
