If you’re a little bit obsessed with your houseplants, your apartment is probably a dreamy plant-filled oasis. As your collection has grown, you’ve also probably found that your plants are sadly taking up too much floor space. One easy solution to your problem is a hanging planter.
Depending on the style of your home, you can find a bunch of really cool macrame and leather planters as well as ceramic, glass and timber terrariums to suit any room in the house. Not only do they add an interesting design element to your home, but they’re also as equally low touch as growing a plant in a grounded pot.
Most people’s hesitation with hanging plants is that they can cause a mess if you don’t go about it the right way. However, all that can be easily avoided if you simply double pot your hanging plant. The outer pot should be your decorative pot that is completely sealed — we’re talking no drainage holes at all — and it has chains or rope fastened directly to it for hanging. The inner pot should be the pot you can water and includes drainage holes, so you don’t kill your plant from overwatering (guilty!).
If you double pot your plant, you can also easily place it in a more sunlit space for a few hours if you’re finding that it’s not getting enough light where it’s hanging. It also means that you can swap plants in and out easily until you find one that’s well suited to your place.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up a range of hanging planters that would make an excellent addition to your sun-drenched balcony, low-lit lounge room and sometimes-sunny bedroom.
