Spider plants are considered one of the hardiest and most adaptable of houseplants and also one of the easiest to grow. Spider Plants can grow in a wide range of conditions and suffers from minimal problems!
The Spider Plant gets its name because of its spider-like baby plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web. These can potentially be perceived as unattractive, so these spiderettes can simply be trimmed off. Spiderettes typically start off as small white flowers. If you're an avid gardener, these can then be propagated and grown into completely new plants!

HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
A common 'problem' with spider plants is browning tips. If your spider plant develops brown tips, never fear, this is completely normal and is often the result of fluoride found in water, which causes salt buildup in the soil over time.
The brown tips can simply be trimmed, if desired. It may also be an indicator of not enough water, so perhaps review your watering frequency.
To eliminate, or prevent browning tips, water with filtered water!
