From flawlessly introducing a trendy plant to tackling windowless room woes, our plant specialist Chrissy will set you up with the perfect plant pick.

“I want to try a hanging basket (I love them on Insta!). What plant would look good in one of these?” —Emily, Telluride

Plants add the most homey (and cool) vibes in any room they’re kept in. While sprucing up yours sills is one thing, an added boost of greenery taken to new heights is a next-level look. 

The heights we’re talking about? The ceiling, of course. Hanging baskets bring the perfect laid-back boho touch that will make your space feel like a true plant haven. No matter what your overall style is, this eye level update is a must.

If you have the basket in mind — but not sure of the perfect plant to set in it — the Pothos is a classic option that will haphazardly hang in all of the right ways. Because of its vining nature, these heart-shaped leaves will trail downwards to make an Insta-friendly statement in any nook it’s in.

A bonus? This beginner-friendly choice only needs low to medium light. Now go get to hanging!
