Spider plant question

   My experience with spider plants has been that the seem to require
more light than a lot of the other houseplants.
   Usually if a plant is not receiving enough light it will shed the
leaves that are receiving the least amount of light. The reason it does
this is so the plant does not have to support useless foliage.
   Spider plants also do not like their feet to be constantly wet. I
would let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
   If you're having a problem in giving the plant the light it needs you
might consider artificial lighting. Fluorescent lights work well and are
relatively inexpensive.
