Potting Spider Plant Babies

I have several spider plants with babies some of them 5-6 inches long, but I see no root buds or roots on them. Can they be repotted without the roots? Or is there something I can do?

No, they won't "take" without roots.
Float them in a bowl of water until the roots form. When they're an inch or longer pot in well watered soil. Once you're sure the roots have taken, start watering only about once a week.

By the way, I didn't mention this but it's okay to cut them off the mother plants to root them. They won't die unless they somehow fail to make roots.
