spider plant

Many of us have seen spider plants, not everyone knows they also have a flower. Spider plants make baby plants at the end of ariel shoots, the flowers are really not necessary for reproduction. . . there are ample opportunities to grow new spider plants from the shoots. Above is a spider plant flower, they are about dime sized. It's time to take in house plants here in Colorado. We haven't had a first frost, but it's coming. Every year when I bring them in I tell myself that I need to cut back. I especially don't need anymore spider plants.
