House Plants/Spider plant babies

do not repot your spider plant so often. It needs to be root bound. when that occurs then your plant will produce babies. I have had some of my spider plant so root bound that all the soil was gone, there was nothing in the pot but roots. My babies have reached almost 6 feet in length.  I only repot when the plant outgrows its pot, and mine are huge. As far as feeding, follow the directions on the package of the food you are going to use.
