spider plant babies
I have recieved, over the last couple of years, lots of spider plant babies from co-workers. They have all had roots, and all of them were decent sized plants (about 6 in.) I planted all of them in miracle gro potting soil. All of them have died on me. Well, a couple of them were eaten by my cat, but that's another topic for another post!! This time, a girl cut off the whole 'runner' and I placed the end of it in a water bottle and left the three plants on it for a couple of weeks before pinching off the first 'baby' to plant in a pot in the kitchen. They thrived while on the stem in the water (only the long runner stem was in the water), but now that it has been potted up for about 10 days, the leaves are turning black along the bottom, and it doesn't seem to have really grown anymore roots than it already had. Am I doing something wrong? I don't want to lose the others.
