I know this is an old post, and I wish I had know about this site sooner but I will try to help anyway in the off chance that you check in. After planting in a decent potting soil, water regularly, but most important, I found that my spider plants thrive in filtered (not direct) light in a nice 65-ish degree room. If you can find a spot to put your plant that is similar to these conditions, you will have significantly less or even no browning. Give it a try.
