I think this is a member of the spider plant family but I am not sure. How can I propagate the young shoots coming out of it?

    Yes, it is. Though the variegated is seen most often, there is a solid green, too.

    But how do you propagate it to get a new plant?

    one way to propagate: put a 4″ pot filled with soil under each proliferation and pin it to the soil with a a hairpin.

    It will root in a month.

    Yes, that is the basic species spider plant which is in the daylily family. Yours looks great! I live in Douglasville too. You can propagate by simply taking a little spider off and putting it in slightly moist soil. I’ve had the seeds drop off the variegated spider plants and come up around the porch for years. The new plants are always sold green. Great strong plants.

    The one in the picture is a Hawaiian Spider plant. They’re babies are variegated and then turn green as they age. Their leaves are also broader than other spider plants. There are many kinds; old fashioned solid green that’s hard to find, variegates with a white center and green edges, Waterfall which is reversed with a white edge and green center, then there’s the Bonny spider plant that the leaves are curly and then ones with more of a cream or yellowish edge then white. There’s others in the genus also that don’t set off babies that look like spiders or airplanes as some call them.

    Sorry I’m a spider plant geek and have one of each
