Hey everyone,


I have a spider plant that I'm trying to save, it was deprived from water for 3 months, so its down to very few leaves.


With that being said, it's currently planted in a hanging planter. Although from what I've read, these plants need drainage. It currently doesn't have any.


I want to add some holes in the bottom but curious, do I need to move it to the sink then when I water it? How does everyone deal with there spider plants?!!


Any tips are greatly appreciated !!


Anything else I should do? Re-pot, move to specific location? Ect.


THANKS

I'd repot it into clean, fresh, dampened soil in a new pot that has drainage holes and an attached drip catcher on the bottom. Place it in a location where it gets plenty of moderate bright light but not too much direct exposure to full, hot sunlight. Water lightly immediately after re-potting to settle the roots in the new soil, then water lightly once every 7-10 days after that. Give it time to recover and start growing again.

good drainage is essential for all plants except swamp or bog plants. Most people kill houseplants by overwatering and poor drainage. I have been able to overwinter huge spider plants for years by bringing them inside and hanging them over a bathtub nobody ever uses.
