Hanging plants are a good way to create colour and greenery if you don’t have much floor space. Below are three popular plants that are easy to maintain and will thrive indoors with easy to manage hanging pots.
Although there are over 11,000 species, the one that is most popular for indoor hanging is the Maidenhair fern (Adiantum Aetheopicum). Only growing up to 1 metre, it has a small and soft textured leaf that can be quite dense at the roots. The foliage has a feather like appearance that is made up of individual leaves and softly drapes over the side of the pot. This tropical plant prefers a medium-low light environment and is perfect for bathrooms where the air is moist and humid.
Another tropical native, the Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum), has become the greenery of choice when it comes to indoor hanging plants. Known for its hardiness and indestructible nature, it can survive in pretty much any condition and will live even with very little watering. The Devil’s Ivy will cascade down the side of the pot once it has reach it’s mature 6 Metres in length. Although being indoors means it won’t flower like in the wild, it has small heart shaped, marbled white, lime and dark green leaves that will brighten up any low lit and dreary room.
String of Pearls
As a member of the Succulent family, the String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) does not like to be over watered. Native to more arid climates it is perfect for sunny and brightly lit rooms. Each strand of pearls can reach up to about 1 metre in length and is perfect for creating a waterfall effect. For a fuller look, you can either plant a group of them in one pot or cut off any strands that are too long and plant them directly back into the soil.
Any of these plants will go well with The Balcony Garden hanging pots, the Bella range. You can check out our friends in the Bella range here.
