Best Indoor Hanging Plants

Have you run out of floor space because your ever-expanding plant collection has taken over every inch of space?! You’ve probably already got an impressive hanging plant collection, but for those who don’t, or those who are looking to maximise their space and plant up, we’ve rounded up some of the best hanging plants.

Devils Ivy

One of the most common plants for beginners and one that thrives on neglect so if you’re known to have a not so green thumb this plant is perfect for you! These beauties look amazing trailing from a hanging pot, cascading down a bookcase or you can even train them to crawl across your walls.

Place your Devils Ivy in bright, indirect light. They will tolerate low light, but this will stunt their growth. These do well in artificial light too.

They only require water when the soil feels dry to touch. If the leaves turn yellow, it looks as though you may have overwatered!

Boston Fern

Its sword-shaped, green fronds look sensational dangling from a hanging pot or pedestal.

The Boston Fern is a little fussier and requires some TLC. They enjoy warm and humid conditions, so misting once or twice a week is beneficial.

Boston Fern's need a cool place to hang (pardon the pun), with high humidity and bright indirect light.

Water frequently to avoid the soil from drying out, but don’t water too much that the soil is soggy!

String of Pearls

The String of Pearls is easily recognizable by the cutest little balls that gracefully spill over the side of its planter or hanging pot.

If planted indoors make sure it’s in a brightly lit spot that doesn't receive direct light, or outdoors in a sheltered, position with bright but indirect light.

Allow the soil to dry out in between watering.

Spider Plant

The Ultimate 70’s plant! No wonder this plant has stood the test of time: They’re super-easy to grow, tolerate all levels of light, and they don’t mind if you miss a weekly watering.

If your Spider Plant is happy, you’ll notice it growing super cute plantlets that you can use to propagate!

Your plant will tolerate lower light conditions; however, they prefer bright indirect light where they will flourish.

Let the soil dry out slightly between watering. Overwatering can cause root rot and ultimately kill your poor little plant friend.

String of Hearts

The delicate heart-shaped grey-green foliage of the String of Hearts will win you over. It is fast-growing, and its trailing vine can create a beautiful curtain.

Place your String of Hearts in an area with plenty of bright indirect light. It doesn’t mind a little bit of sun either, but not too much or you’ll scorch the leaves.

If you are starting to notice large spaces between leaves, it’s probably because it’s not getting enough light.

You can confidently allow the soil to dry out completely in between watering, then provide a deep watering. Good drainage is vital.

And look no further than our Maggie hanging pots from the Humphrey Range to house your trailing beauties in! There are two sizes and four different colours available.
