Unique Ways to Hang and Display Plants
Macrame plant hangers
Macrame plant hangers are a great way to add visual interest and texture to any room. Made from rope or fabric, macrame hangers can be used to hang a variety of plants and come in a range of colors and styles.

Boho beaded hanging planter
If you're looking for a boho-chic way to hang plants, beaded hanging planters are a stylish way to display a variety of plants while adding a touch of whimsy and color.
Choose beaded hanging planters that feature bold colors and patterns to really make them stand out. But if your home is already vibrantly decorated, opt for a planter with more subtle colors and patterns.
A trellis shelf is an ideal option if you want to display multiple small plants together. Simply attach the shelf to the wall, and then hang your plants with hooks or string.
Choose a trellis shelf in an interesting shape or color to make your display more eye-catching.
If you're looking for a more traditional way to hang plants, ceramic and stone planters are always a great choice. Look for ceramic planters with an interesting pattern or texture to make them stand out. For rooms with a minimalist aesthetic, opt for neutral-tone planters.
Coconut shell planters
100% eco-friendly coconut shell planters are a great option for hanging succulents and orchids, as the shells provide a great natural environment for the plants.
Chains and rods
Whether you're looking for an industrial-style display or something more modern, chains and rods can create a show-stopping display.
For an unexpected way to hang plants, why not try using a swing set? They are sure to make any room more lively. From wood to metal and even fabric versions, you can find a swing set to fit any home.
When choosing a swing set for your plants, you may opt for a bright color to make it pop against the wall. Or, if you prefer a more subtle design, go for a neutral color that won't compete with the other elements in the room.
Wooden log or a twig
Try using a wooden log or a twig to add a rustic touch to any room. A simple way is to nail two logs together and then attach your plant pots with a string or wire. This is sure to bring a touch of nature into any room. Look for logs with an interesting texture or color to make your display stand out. Beach logs with a weathered look are also perfect for creating a rustic atmosphere.
Best Places for Hanging Plants
Living room corner
As focal points, plants can draw attention to an otherwise overlooked corner in the living room. Place a hanging basket with trailing greenery or a sculptural potted plant near a window or in the corner of the room for an eye-catching display.
Hang a basket of herbs near the window or suspend planters with trailing vines above the kitchen island for a lush, green look.
Hang a basket of plants or suspend planters with trailing vines to add color and create a spa-like atmosphere. Plants that love humidity, like ferns, orchids, and spider plants, will thrive in the bathroom.
Balcony or patio
Mix and match shapes and sizes for an eclectic display, or opt for a cascading look with trailing plants. You can also create an outdoor oasis on your patio.
Use that space at the end of the hallway and create an eye-catching display with hanging plants. Suspend a planter or basket of greenery near a window or overhead to draw attention. Or, if you want a subtler look, place a flower pot on the floor near the window for an elegant touch.
Tips for Maintaining Your Hanging Plants
- Water your plants regularly to keep them healthy. Most hanging plants prefer to be watered about once a week.
- Make sure the plants have enough sunlight for optimal growth. If you don't have natural lighting in your home, look for an artificial light source like a grow light.
- Give your plants some extra love and attention by occasionally grooming them to remove dead leaves and pests. Prune and trim the plants as necessary to keep them in shape and encourage new growth (Steil, n.d.).
- Repot your plants when necessary to give them enough space to grow and thrive.
- Feed the plants balanced fertilizers regularly to boost their growth and health.
