The Best Plants To Hang In Your Home

5 min read

Trailing and hanging plants in baskets create an eye-catching display for your home and garden, and - bonus! - can also free up floor space. This makes hanging plants a viable option for smaller homes or apartments where space is limited. There are many types of hanging plants to choose from such as big, bold and flowery plants to subtle and delicate ones, providing some variety for you to choose from. To help you, we have picked some of the top hanging plants to include in your home or garden.

Devil’s Ivy

Devil’s Ivy is an evergreen vine that is a classic choice as a hanging plant. It's a popular plant for beginner gardeners thanks to it being low maintenance and being able to grow in most conditions. Devil’s Ivy will generally thrive in bright, indirect sunlight but will also tolerate locations with lower levels of light. 

Expect it to grow rapidly and begin to show off a lush green tangle of vines and leaves that can add to any space or garden. When caring for your Devil’s Ivy, be sure to water it sparingly as it is drought tolerant. To know if you need to water the plant, check the soil and if it feels too dry. 


Boston Fern

The Boston Fern is a bushy fern with an upright growth habit and sprightly apple to emerald green leaves, providing a nice botanical display for your home or garden. They are a good choice for beginners as they’re adaptable plants that require basic care and are suited to most settings. 


Kokedama is a form of Japanese bonsai that is made by taking a plant out of a pot and forming it into a ball of soil, held together with string and moss and thrives indoors. You can make your own Kokedama style plant with a variety of plants but some plants work better than others, such as ferns or similar plant types. If you are uncertain as to whether you have the right plant, check with your local florist or nursery.

Your kokedama will have some unique needs when caring for it. As the plant is predominantly moss, it requires some light but not excessive amounts as it will dry out if it sits in direct light. Your kokedama will need to be watered regularly. You can determine if it needs to be watered by simply weighing your plant, if it feels light it most likely needs to be watered. If the leaves are beginning to brown this is another sign that it requires water.  


Chain Of Hearts

This sweet houseplant is a versatile vine and is known for its unique heart-shaped leaves and tangling vines that trail downwards as it grows from its hanging pot. Chain of Hearts plants are low-maintenance and can produce flowers regularly throughout the year. It is a durable plant that is drought tolerant and can withstand lower temperatures. For best growth results , keep your plant in bright light, with some direct sun which will promote the best colour and plenty of leaves.

Chinese Money Plant 

The Chinese Money Plant is easily identified thanks to its rounded green leaves which provide a burst of green colour, which can be utilised in rooms with white walls. It is an easy to care for plant that will grow quickly and fill out your hanging pot. To keep a nice shape for your plant and prevent it from becoming lopsided, rotate it at least once a week. 

It is a versatile plant that can be kept indoors or in a shady spot in the garden as direct sunlight will scorch the leaves, causing them to die. Your Chinese Money Plant needs to be watered regularly, a common telltale sign is if the leaves begin to droop. Between waterings, allow the soil to mostly dry out.
