Hanging plants give any space an added feeling of calmness and are atheistically pleasing. Plants in general can also boost your mood, enhance your creativity, reduce your stress levels, increase your productivity, naturally filter air pollutants, and much more. Below are some types of hanging plants that are great for the indoors and are easy to care for!

Pothos Hanging Plants

Pothos do well in a wide variety of light conditions and are therefore an excellent option for even low-light homes. It is best to avoid direct sunlight. These plants don’t actually have to be planted in soil; they do very well just placed in a container with water. It is best to water them when the soil dries out. These plants are trailers and love to spread.

Philodendron Micans

Known for its velvety, heart-shaped leaves and trailing growth habit. These plants are easy to care for and are great houseplants. They appreciate bright, indirect light; well-draining soil; and regular watering. While the philodendron micans does produce flowers in the wild, it is extremely rare for them to flower indoors and when they do, the blooms are fairly insignificant compared to their brilliant foliage. They love to hang from a pot.

Spider Plants

They are among the most adaptable houseplants, and very easy to grow. A graceful plant that makes a statement anywhere—from a tabletop to a mantle, or with its lovely arching leaves as a hanging plant. It is also known for its air purifying qualities, which is a healthy addition to any home. This plant can tolerate lower light conditions, however, they prefer bright indirect light where they will flourish. The striping on the leaves will be more prominent with indirect lighting. It is best to water when the top 50% of the soil is dry.

Tradescantia Nanouk Plants

This plant was specifically designed to be colorful, attractive, and easy to grow. It grows best in bright and indirect light. Watering should occur when the top inch or so of the soil is dry, and take care not to let it completely dry out. North-facing windows will provide less light, so your plant will need less water there than in an east-facing window.

String of Hearts Trailing Plant

This plant is a trailing vine plant with heart-shaped, variegated leaves. String of hearts prefers bright indirect light. They will not survive in low light, and direct sun will scorch the leaves. During the spring and summer, water once or twice a week. During the fall and winter when the plant is dormant, water every two weeks. Make sure the soil is dried out in between watering.
