Spider Plant Turning Black and Dying

Hi Judy,
I repotted this spider plant about 2 weeks ago and it is wilting and turning brown. Any idea what I can do to revive it?
Thank you!

Hi AnneMarie,

Spider plants like to be very root bound in small pots. I think when you moved the plant to a larger pot you may have given it too much water. The roots stayed wet and then rotted. If it were my plant, I would take it out of the pot, shake off all the soil, and allow it to sit out bare root for a day or two. Cut off any roots that appear soft and mushy. Repot into a container that is only an inch or two larger than the root ball using fresh dry soil. Cut off all dead or dying leaves. Place in bright indirect light. Hopefully new growth will develop from what roots still remain healthy.
