Repotting spider plant
I recently bought a few discount (read: dying) spider plants, including one that I bought today.
I'm wondering where the "soil" level should be in relation to the leaves and root system. How it came from the store, the soil level is up past the joint where the roots meet the leaves, such that the leaves are very much touching the soil. One of my past discount spider plants died of rot within a week after purchasing, seemingly because of the leaves were touching the not-well-drained soil.
Is that ideal? My gut says that the soil level should be at or below where the leaves meet the roots. Is that the case?
