What are the best indoor hanging plants?

Indoor hanging plants are a great way to get creative with your home decor. From adding plants that climb down your stair banisters, or trail from shelves on your walls – there’s always a way to breathe more life into your home.

It can be important to know the difference between hanging plants and climbing plants. Climbing plants are going to want to ‘hook’ themselves into crevices as they creep and crawl towards the light; whereas hanging plants will trail and fall freely from wherever they are placed.

In any case, you’ll want plenty of nooks and crannies in your home if you want to keep your hanging plants and climbing plants happy and healthy!

How can I hang my plants indoors?

This is a great questions as there are several ways to do this.

Firstly, many hanging plants (especially ones we sell) actually come with their own plastic hanging basket with a detachable hook. This gives you the freedom to hook and hang your indoor plant directly onto something appropriate in your home or, detach the hook and place the plastic basket in a stylish ceramic pot

  • Secondly, you can opt to purchase a macramé hanger. These are woven hanging cradles, made from string or rope that will hold your indoor hanging plant comfortably, while looking chic and stylish. They’re very often seen in ‘bohemian’ style decor and Scandi-inspired houses
  • Thirdly, you can purchase ceramic pots with holes already integrated into their designs with ropes in tow.

There is no right or wrong way to hang your indoor plants (apart from maybe upside down), but find the way that suits your home and style the most and get creative with your indoor garden.

Where Can I Hang My plants Indoors?

So, your next question is probably where should I hang my indoor houseplants? Well, the good news is that Hanging plants are all typically hardy houseplants. They’re perfect for your house, home office, student digs, and/or workplace. If you’re looking for items or furniture to hang these houseplants on, you should definitely consider: 

  • bookcase
  • shelf
  • wardrobe
  • chest of draws
  • filing cabinet
  • desks or tables

Next, have a think about how close your houseplant is going to want to be to a window. Most plants love a brightly lit room but like to be away from harsh sunlight. You can find al of this information on our “light & location” sections of our product descriptions.

Our Best Indoor Hanging Plants

English Ivy (Hedera Helix)

If you’re from the UK, you will have almost certainly seen English Ivy climbing trees in parks. As they are adapted to British weather, they perform best in a cool and humid environment. Treat them to a misting and add cascading leaves to your home for some natural British authenticity.

Heartleaf Philodendron (Philodendron Scandens)

This stunning indoor plant has beautiful heart-shaped leaves which gently hang from tender stems. The Heartleaf Philodendron has 2 varieties, the second being the ‘Brazil’ variety which is variegated and has a distinctive yellow stripe running through it’s centre.

Devils Ivy (Epipremnum Aureum)

Devils Ivy is one of the most popular indoor climbing plants, due to it’s ‘unkillable’ nature and ferocious growing prowess. It can survive in low light conditions and is really low maintenance – a great choice if you’re new to indoor gardening.

String of Hearts (Ceropegia Woodii)

This indoor hanging plant has super delicate stems which trail beautifully from shelves or bookcases with leaves which resemble a turquoise turtle shell in the shape of a heart. A great choice for a bright, warm room. Available in a plastic hanging basket or a kokedama (moss ball).

Satin Pothos (Scindapsus Pictus)

An interesting indoor plant. Its leaves speckled with silver notes hang delicately from stems similarly to the Heartleaf Philodendron. They pair well due to their similarities but contrast due to the difference in their leaves texture and colour.

Marble Queen (Epipremnum Aureum)

This hanging plant is a distant cousin to Devils Ivy. With beautifully variegated leaves (different in colour and patterned) with a marble like pattern running through them. Add contrast to your other plants with this stunner.

String of Pearls (Senecio Rowleyanus)

This hanging plant is super easy to propagate and requires little watering. Keep in a warm bright room and watch the pearls trail from wherever you house them. The pearls hang from stems so thin they look like strings.

Neon Pothos (Epipremnum Aureum)

Yet another stunning variation of Devils Ivy. Neon Pothos has bright green, almost yellow, leaves which add a huge pop of colour to wherever they live. Also super easy to propagate and add contrast to other houseplants you may already have.

String of Bananas (Senecio Radicans)

This trailing plant is very similiar to the String of Pearls. However, the leaves or buds look much more banana shaped, hence the name String of Bananas. They enjoy similiar conditions in a brightly lit warm room.
