Hanging Plants and Planters

Posted by The Sill on

Let's face it - in a New York City apartment every square foot matters. Hanging your houseplants is a great way to bring the outdoors in without losing valuable living space.

Six Favorite Hanging Houseplants:

  1. Spider Plant 
  2. English Ivy 
  3. Bird's Nest Fern 
  4. Heart-Leaf Philodendron 
  5. Golden Pothos 
  6. String of Pearls (pictured) 

Tips for Hanging Plants: 

  • Wet soil can be heavy -- before you hang anything from your ceiling, make sure it can support the weight 
  • Choose a light-weight potting soil to reduce heaviness 
  • Make sure the soil is an inch or so below the lip of the planter -- this will help to reduce dripping when watering 
  • If your hanging pot has a drainage hole, attach a saucer to the bottom or take down to water to protect your floors and furniture 
  • Air near the ceiling tends to be warmer and drier than down below -- high hanging plants will need to be watered more often than floor and table plants 
  • Scroll through our dedicated Pots, Planters, & Vessels Pinterest Board for serious inspiration to help get you started
