Spider plant is one of the easy plants to propagate. It is very easy to 
divide the roots...the plantlets will just fall away from the main root 
mass. Simply replant the little plants. If the root mass is large enough 
just take a sharp knife and split the root ball. As long as you have a 
few leaves and a few roots the new plant will be as big as the old plant 
within a year. If each plant produces 10 plantlets per year in the 
secound year you will have 10x10= 100 plants. In the third year you will 
have enough plants to fill the grand ball room. Good luck!!!]
