A Good Pot Makes Everything Better

Glazed to perfection, our hitch hanging pot is a ceramic plant pot made for the indoors. They come in two colours, yellow and white. We recommend them for small to medium-sized plants given their dimensions.

They give a healthy aesthetic boost to your plant buddy and they’ll look even better on your Instagram! You don’t need to worry about leaks as the basket is lined with PVC to hold water.
1. Bird’s Nest Fern
Bright green and full of life. The Bird’s Nest Fern looks like a miniature banana plant with its large and lively fronds. Ferns are loved by indoor plant lovers for their versatility. They fit in just about anywhere! Not to mention they are extremely easy to care for. When it comes to hanging indoor plants, the Birds Nest Fern tops our list.
Even though the plant is mostly grown in regular ground pots, we do recommend giving her some elevation! The extra height gives them a feel of elegance. Caring for the Bird’s Nest Fern is easy. Keep the soil moist and don’t allow direct sunlight to fall on them. But remember the keyword being moist, if you overwater the plant it will catch root rot!
If you are looking for a companion to liven up your empty bathroom, a Bird’s Nest Fern is one of the best indoor hanging plants for you. The extra moisture in the air will keep the leaves glossy and firm.
2. Boston Fern
With sword-like fronds, the Boston fern has a killer look! It’s widely popular due to its air-purifying properties. However, we believe the Boston fern is much more than a simple air purifier. The unique look of these hanging indoor plants with its long rhizomes gives them an alluring effect.
As the Boston fern matures, its fronds and rhizomes will spread out. The long rhizomes droop down off the edges, curling into the foliage. The combination of long sword-shaped foliage and curling rhizomes is mesmerising to the eye.
The Boston fern is also one of the best hanging plants for busy homes. Like most ferns, they don’t need tons of attention. They only need a splash of water when the top layer of the soil dries out.
Since the Boston fern is from the tropics, it prefers a humid climate. Boston ferns might need daily misting if your atmosphere is dry to keep their leaves firm and healthy. Our mister bottle adds a nice touch!
3. Golden Goddess Philodendron
Are you on the hunt for rare hanging indoor plants? The Golden Goddess Philodendron or the Malay Gold is a relatively rare house plant. The buttery yellow leaves of the plant will leave visitors in awe!
The Malay Gold hails from the tropics of Thailand. Even though they are rare, caring for the Malay Gold is effortless. The tropical beauty grows fast and is hardy enough to bear changes and disease. They are one of the best indoor hanging plants for humid environments.
Adding a Malay Gold into your home will brighten it up instantly. The bright foliage radiates energy like no other! To keep your plant in top shape, it might need a bit of misting but that’s about all the care it needs. Give the beauty a splash of water when the top layer of soil dries out and she will be as happy as she can be.
4. Chinese Money Plant
Bring joy and prosperity to your home by growing a Chinese money plant. They make their way onto our list from the distant lands of South Asia. Grown for its aesthetic beauty and auspicious qualities, the Chinese money plant has been a staple amongst households for thousands of years. Plus, according to Feng shui, money plants are believed to bring wealth and abundance into a household. Now that's what we love to hear!
If you love the oriental vibes, the Chinese money plant is one of the best hanging plants to own. The plant is packed with thin stems that hold round glossy leaves. The waxy green leaves shine and flutter when properly taken care of! Give them love and in a few months, you will have a set of baby money plants peeking out from the soil.
They don’t need a lot of effort as they have evolved to survive the harsh tropical terrains. But we never encourage neglecting plants! Water the plant as the soil dries out to prevent them from drooping. Don’t overwater as it can cause root rot.
This plant comes in a Kokodama, a container made from coconuts. We believe it gives hanging indoor plants a boost in aesthetics!
5. Peperomia Pepperspot
The Peperomia pepperspot is the auspicious rival to the Chinese money plant. These hanging indoor plants are loved by households as tales speak of their ability to bring prosperity to homes! The plant is native to the Amazon forests where they spend their time catching any light that seeps through the dense canopies.
The dark green leaves of these hanging indoor plants attach themselves to the reddish vines that spread out from the base. The contrasting colours give the dark foliage an attractive “pop” when looked at. These vines grow quickly and fill out with dense clusters of leaves.
It takes a few years for the pepperspot to mature, therefore you can think of this as an investment. If you are lucky, you might even see her flower! They are one the best hanging indoor plants for gardeners that love to commit to a single plant. Just make sure not to overwater the plant as they are prone to root rot.
6. String of Hearts
I wouldn’t say no to a String of Hearts for valentine! You don’t always see heart-shaped leaves on hanging indoor plants and this one has aplenty. The String of Hearts will sparkle up your home with its delicate yet graceful beauty.
Even though the plant looks similar to a vine, they belong to a variety of succulents. But don’t let their delicate look fool you! The String of Hearts is surprisingly resilient and hardy.
The foliage of the String of Hearts is intricately patterned. Variegated foliage of this nature is hard to come by and this makes the String of Hearts one of the best hanging plants to own. Just make sure to keep them in the shade as the leaves do catch burns pretty quick.
7. Curly Spider plant
The ever-famous Spider plant! You can grow these bushy little plants anywhere you want and they’ll look fabulous! However, the curly variety looks best when they are given a little bit of height.
We recommend a Kokodama for hanging indoor plants such as the curly spider plant; the setup transforms into an astounding spherical shape because of the curling foliage.
The bright green leaves of the spider plant have yellow variegations on them, which gives them an ornamental effect. We recommend placing the plant near a window as lack of light will cause fading. The beautiful patterns can disappear otherwise!
A spider plant is one of the best indoor hanging plants for beginners! They don’t need tons of attention and will thrive as long as you water them accordingly.
8. Hoya Silver Splash
A majestic name that does a splendid job of defining her grandeur. Even though these hanging indoor plants aren’t the easiest to grow, the hoya silver splash is well worth the effort! If you are lucky, your hoya might even flower!
The hoya silver splash is one of the best hanging plants on our list when it comes to appearance. You could say that this plant “transforms” over the course of its lifetime.
In their early stages the foliage starts off purple, but as it matures they turn deep green. The colour change is fascinating. Of course, how can you forget the fancy silverish markings! Growing the hoya silver splash takes a bit of effort, but you’d be happy to know that the silver splash is the easiest to grow out of all the Hoya varieties.
All the hanging indoor plants on our list are tough and hardy. They’ll survive in a humid bathroom and rustle on a windy balcony. You can easily shift them around.
Here’s a genius idea! Bunch a few plants together! Instead of hanging a single lonely plant near a window, coupling her with another will bring a world of difference. A Golden Goddess and a Spider plant bring a splash of light into a boring living room! It’s all about being creative.
Don’t stop with this list of the best indoor hanging plants! Be sure to check out our other blogs on the topic. You might find something that catches your eye. After all the heart wants what the heart wants!
