Hi! How do I get a spider plant to creat the shoots?

    I have never had a problem with spider plants creating shoots. I suspect adequate sunlight and water is the key. When I put mine outdoors during the summer time, they go crazy with shoots and blooms. I usually give them somewhat of a partially shaddy spot like hanging off a porch.

    when a spider plant becomes root bound it will produce shoots eventually forming minature spider plants at the end of the shoot.
