HAVE: Free Spiderlings from Amazing Spider Plant

I have owned HANGING SPIDER PLANTS in the past and they come and they go.

When I started a new job two years ago, I bought another one! WOW! What a huge cascade it puts out - and quickly. I gave everyone in the office permission to snip starters off whenever, and I never noticed any missing but everyone started several plants off of it.

The leaves are varigated deep green, light green and white. The leaves get nice and broad, not like skinny spaghetti varieties. It has survived watering abuse and droughts during the holiday seasons.

This week, the mother plant was getting a little weary of all of the demands and weight of her offspring, so I snipped off 40 chunky seedlings.

They are soaking in the kitchen skink to root a bit more (the spouse is worried now)and I am off to the store to buy potting materials.

Is anyone interested in trading starter plants or for SASE?

Any tips on mailing them would be appreciated too.

You are probably going to have to wait intil spring to mail them.

What I often do is wash most of the soil off the roots, wrap the root in a wet paper towel, and fold a damp one around the leaves, put it in a baggie, and then a paper towel or toilet paper roll for protection. Then use bubble wrap and mail. It seems to work best if you mail it on a Monday so it has a chance to get there within the week.

And by the way I would love to have one of these in the spring.
