My hybrid spider plant

Scituate, MA

My spider plant has been flowering. One of the stocks has gotten very long, Can I cut it to make a new plant? If so, do I need to put it in water to root?

This is a normal habit of these plants and it is wanting to inhabit other areas so it throws these tentacles off to seek out greener pastures . I notice it's in a wet area so it's looking for water as well. Very nice specimen. http://www.gardenenchantment.com

Wait until the baby plantlets start to grow nubs on the part attached to the stem. Those will be the roots of your new plants. Put them in moist, not wet, potting soil and have fun!

Couldn't agree more.. to do love to inhibit other areas.

After the flowers are finished, baby plants will grow on that stolon. When you can see little aerial root nubs on them, mentioned above, they can be separated from the mama plant. Where the flowers are, seeds may also form. (included image)

The image linked below shows the aerial roots on a baby ready to be separated from the mama. They don't have to be this long, but they should be very distinct before you attempt separation.
