I am still fretting about my spider plant. The mother looks much better now after repotting. However, most of the babies look so pale and droopy. Any suggestons? Thank you!

It could just be shock from transplanting or to much water.Let the soil dry in between waterings,spider plants are very hardy.You should have great luck.

agreed. when you water, water well, but they need to dry out in between waterings. Also try changing your lighting... the babies can be a little photosensitive at first.

maybe your plant is putting all its energy into roots.you could take the babies off and pot them/root them.sometimes you can pry them babies off the stem.useually the ones that remove easier are ready for potting and the others need a bit of water(place on edge of saucer,or rest in shot glass)They store water in their roots thats why they look lumpy.
