I have had a spider plant for a while and noticed it had gotten whiter and whiter and thought maybe it was getting too much light which was indirect

recently I got a new cat so I put the plant on the balcony ledge because I feared she might jump on the shelf

I forgot to move the plant but today I noticed it is much greener and not so white
it still is not direct sunlight for most of the day

..it wasn't getting enough light.  Spider plants are tough, it should come back and be lovely again.

Light: Undemanding. Spider plants prefer bright light, and tend toward scorching in direct sunlight. However, they will grow in conditions ranging from semi-shady to partial direct sun.
Water: Water liberally through the summer. Mist occasionally. During winter, cut watering back.
Mine always did well about 5' from a sunny window indoors.
                                          


                                                                             

No need to explain: your friends don't require it and your enemies won't believe you anyway.Grin
