Does anyone else stake their spider plant?

3 months ago

Mine was planted in a shallow pot for some time and became flat and lopsided, probably for not being planted deep enough. The base of some of these were pushing above the media. I took to tying them (gingeely) in a fountain ponytail sorta arrangement. The leaves are fragile and break at the slightest touch. Eventually I potted it somewhat deeper in a bigger pot, put the floppy side away from light (window) so it would rise up to reach for the light but it continues to be floppy and lopsided. Now it is back in a custom made stake.
