I have a gorgeous spider plant that is actually flowering! Should I trim the shoots to make new plants?

  • Well, it's probably the environment that the plant is in, rather than its genetics, that are making it look so good. If you don't have good locations for other spider plants, don't expect the cuttings to produce spider-plant gorgeousness. Actually, I'm not a big fan and don't grow them any more; they grow too fast for me—I can't keep up with them.

  • You can but you don't have to. It's worth a try if you feel like your location is great for them.
