What better way to decorate your home with plants, I always say.

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I especially love plants that hang and drop, they are so interesting to watch grow and I love the look of them covering walls and shelves. A bit obsessed with plants that consume lots of space and grow big and large, it might be a problem but I’ll deal with it when I have to.

As of just recently we started propagating our Philodendrons, Pothos, and Ivies so I thought it was just appropriate to write you all a post on our favorite indoor hanging plants!

So lets get into it, here are some amazing hanging plants you can start growing in your home!

1. Indoor Ivy – Plural Ivies

I love Indoor Ivy plants for so many reasons. There are tons of varieties out there that you can choose from to grow and they look absolutely gorgeous.

You can also scale Ivy’s to follow along walls horizontally, and your house guests will absolutely be impressed with your work! Get a full aesthetic and wrap them through a wooden ladder!

2. Peperomia – Peperomia Pellucida

Again, with these plants there are so many different varieties you are able to grow and they look stunning.

Definitely in love with their leaves and they are very unique to Peperomia plants so you can almost always spot this plant the moment you see them!

3. Arrowhead Plant – Syngonium Podophyllum

Okay, you cannot tell me the Arrowhead Plant isn’t just the greatest thing you’ve seen today.

The variation on the leaves is a pattern I am obsessed with and look for with many of my Pothos and Philodendron plants.

They are very brightly colored plants and make amazing home decor plants!

4. Donkey’s Tail – Sedum Morganianum

In full transparency I have yet to grow a Donkey’s Tail succulent for myself, but I intend to very soon.

I’ve recently started fixating on hanging plants in my home and this will soon join my collection. I love the way they look sitting on tabletops as well as hanging from ceilings in the corners of rooms. The possibilities are endless!

5. Philodendron – Philodendron Bipinnatifidum

At some point in your life, you are bound to obtain some variation of a Philodendron. I currently have a Brasil Philodendron growing and I have also started propagating it to make it leafier and longer!

If you don’t necessarily have a good track record with growing plants, and don’t own a Philodendron yet, then I highly recommend you start with one of these babies it will treat you well.

Going to interrupt your regularly scheduled program to tell you all about our Facebook group! We just recently started a community on Facebook to gather gardeners and plant growing enthusiasts! Join the group here, and post a picture of a houseplant you are currently growing and we just might feature you on our website!

6. Pothos – Epipremnum Aureum

Okay, so these are much like the Philodendron in a sense with their care and structure and also fairly easy to grow.

A common problem for both plants (and probably every indoor plant, ever) is that they get overwatered and that will be the downfall for them (no pun intended, you don’t want that).

I am growing and propagating the Golden Pothos and I am extremely excited for it to expand and honestly just turn into a monster of a plant.

7. Spider Plant – Chlorophytum Comosum

Spider Plants are also a favorite of mine to grow indoors and they can honestly grow pretty large if you don’t trim them back, but I don’t mind, bigger the better!

Spider Plants (in my experience, at least) are also very easy plants to propagate in water, so if you are new to propagation, then try your hand at these and learn the basics of them!

8. String of Pearls – Senecio Rowleyanus

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I am entirely obsessed with the look of this plant. They are extraordinarily unique and you probably won’t find another plant like it!

The string of Pearls plant looks great hanging from ceilings (as you can see) but they also make great plants to place on taller shelves and counters!

9. Staghorn Fern – Platycerium

Just recently have I been learning about Staghorn Ferns and I almost didn’t add them to this list here but they are just so unique I couldn’t help myself.

The process of actually getting them ready and hung up is pretty difficult and does require a lot more care than your average houseplant so we do not recommend this for beginner growers.

10. Boston Fern – Nephrolepis Exaltata

This is such a gorgeous fern and I love the amount of space it takes at its maturity. Of course you can hang them on the ceiling, counters or pots but personally, I would have mine from the ceiling and just completely consume a corner of my home.

So before you go, let me give you some advice with growing hanging plants for myself.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A PERFECT CARE GUIDE TO EVERY INDOOR PLANT YOU HAVE, JUST GENERAL TIPS THAT MANY INDOOR PLANTS NEED TO THRIVE.

Water: It’s common to plant knowledge that, the more leaves a plant grows, then generally the more water it will need to consume to keep producing energy to create more leaves and stems.

I say these need more water than other plants, but you also need to be aware that over watering your plants is the #1 household plant killer.

How can you tell you need to water your indoor plants? Stick your finger 2-3 inches below the soil, if you don’t feel any moisture, then it is time for them to get a bit of a drink.

It is also good to know that, the smaller the pot a plant lives in, the more likely that one will need to be watered more often, simply because it just can’t store as much water as larger pots can.


Light: So this is another common household plant killer. You honestly really need to think about the lighting your home has to offer before you start purchasing plants.

A tip I’ve learned from Planterina is that, if you can’t comfortably read a book in a room without having to look harder or longer at the words, then you should not put plants there.

Many very leafy plants don’t typically like direct sunlight as well and that can actually cause the leaves of said plant to burn, brown, or just stunt their growth entirely.

It’s absolutely important you look up proper care guides for any future plants you plan to have in your home and make sure you are able to accommodate to their needs.
