I cut off a spiderette from a spider plant
a couple of years ago. The plant
rooted in water and I promptly planted it. I planted about 3-4 spiderettes. Only one of those really grew. I realize I probably didn't give it enough light because if really didn't grow that much. In the last 2 years it has grown just enough to cover a medium size pot. However recently I think it rotted from overwatering and I repotted it. However the repotting is not working. The roots of the main plant
looked healthy - also with a large bulbous white root which I think is the water collection. Since its been repotted (1 week) it has continued to wilt and all of its leave are brown and shriveling.
My question is - should I let it go and hope it survives, or try rerooting it by putting the plant
in water and starting from scratch? The plant
is also very special because supposedly it is a 3rd generation spiderette off of Albert Einstein's very own spider plant
at Princeton University.
Thanks for any help you can give. CLICK FOR PICTURE
