I especially love plants that hang and drop, they are so interesting to watch grow and I love the look of them covering walls and shelves. A bit obsessed with plants that consume lots of space and grow big and large, it might be a problem but I’ll deal with it when I have to.

As of just recently we started propagating our Philodendrons, Pothos, and Ivies so I thought it was just appropriate to write you all a post on our favorite indoor hanging plants!

So lets get into it, here are some amazing hanging plants you can start growing in your home!

1. Ivy – Hedera Helix

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I love Indoor Ivy plants for so many reasons. There are tons of varieties out there that you can choose from to grow and they look absolutely gorgeous.

You can also scale Ivy’s to follow along walls horizontally, and your house guests will absolutely be impressed with your work! Get a full aesthetic and wrap them through a wooden ladder!

Check out these planters you can put on your wall to let your plants trail from!

2. Peperomia

Again, with these plants there are so many different varieties you are able to grow and they look stunning.

Definitely in love with their leaves and they are very unique to Peperomia plants so you can almost always spot this plant the moment you see them!

3. Arrowhead Plant – Syngonium Podophyllum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Okay, you cannot tell me the Arrowhead Plant isn’t just the greatest thing you’ve seen today.

The variation on the leaves is a pattern I am obsessed with and look for with many of my Pothos and Philodendron plants.

They are very brightly colored plants and make amazing home decor plants!

4. Donkey’s Tail – Sedum Morganianum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

In full transparency I have yet to grow a Donkey’s Tail succulent for myself, but I intend to very soon.

I’ve recently started fixating on hanging plants in my home and this will soon join my collection. I love the way they look sitting on tabletops as well as hanging from ceilings in the corners of rooms. The possibilities are endless!

5. Philodendron – Heart Leaf Philodendron

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

At some point in your life, you are bound to obtain some variation of a Philodendron. I currently have a Brasil Philodendron growing and I have also started propagating it to make it leafier and longer!

If you don’t necessarily have a good track record with growing plants, and don’t own a Philodendron yet, then I highly recommend you start with one of these babies it will treat you well.

Going to interrupt your regularly scheduled program to tell you all about our Facebook group! We just recently started a community on Facebook to gather gardeners and plant growing enthusiasts! Join the group here, and post a picture of a houseplant you are currently growing and we just might feature you on our website!

6. Pothos – Epipremnum Aureum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Okay, so these are much like the Philodendron in a sense with their care and structure and also fairly easy to grow.

A common problem for both plants (and probably every indoor plant, ever) is that they get overwatered and that will be the downfall for them (no pun intended, you don’t want that).

I am growing and propagating the Golden Pothos and I am extremely excited for it to expand and honestly just turn into a monster of a plant.

7. Spider Plant – Chlorophytum Comosum

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Spider Plants are also a favorite of mine to grow indoors and they can honestly grow pretty large if you don’t trim them back, but I don’t mind, bigger the better!

Spider Plants (in my experience, at least) are also very easy plants to propagate in water, so if you are new to propagation, then try your hand at these and learn the basics of them!

8. String of Pearls – Senecio Rowleyanus

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

I am entirely obsessed with the look of this plant. They are extraordinarily unique and you probably won’t find another plant like it!

The string of Pearls plant looks great hanging from ceilings (as you can see) but they also make great plants to place on taller shelves and counters!

9. Staghorn Fern – Platycerium

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

Just recently have I been learning about Staghorn Ferns and I almost didn’t add them to this list here but they are just so unique I couldn’t help myself.

The process of actually getting them ready and hung up is pretty difficult and does require a lot more care than your average houseplant so we do not recommend this for beginner growers.

10. Boston Fern – Nephrolepis Exaltata

How to grow cascading plants indoors, hanging plants indoors, how to take care of indoor plants, how to take care of household plants, how to take care of vines, indoor plants care guide, best hanging plants for indoors

This is such a gorgeous fern and I love the amount of space it takes at its maturity. Of course you can hang them on the ceiling, counters or pots but personally, I would have mine from the ceiling and just completely consume a corner of my home.

So before you go, let me give you some advice with growing hanging plants for myself.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A PERFECT CARE GUIDE TO EVERY INDOOR PLANT YOU HAVE, JUST GENERAL TIPS THAT MANY INDOOR PLANTS NEED TO THRIVE.

I say these need more water than other plants, but you also need to be aware that over watering your plants is the #1 household plant killer.

How can you tell you need to water your indoor plants? Stick your finger 2-3 inches below the soil, if you don’t feel any moisture, then it is time for them to get a bit of a drink.

It is also good to know that, the smaller the pot a plant lives in, the more likely that one will need to be watered more often, simply because it just can’t store as much water as larger pots can.


Light: So this is another common household plant killer. You honestly really need to think about the lighting your home has to offer before you start purchasing plants.

A tip I’ve learned from Planterina is that, if you can’t comfortably read a book in a room without having to look harder or longer at the words, then you should not put plants there.

Many very leafy plants don’t typically like direct sunlight as well and that can actually cause the leaves of said plant to burn, brown, or just stunt their growth entirely.

It’s absolutely important you look up proper care guides for any future plants you plan to have in your home and make sure you are able to accommodate to their needs.

  4. And just generally not having enough space.

You might be surprised when I tell you that Avocado plants are extremely easy to grow, even in an apartment!

What do you need to start growing? Simply another avocado!

It’s nothing new to the process of how you do it of course, but if you don’t know already:

  1. Stick 4 toothpicks into an avocado pit.
  2. Place on top of a glass of water so the toothpicks hold the pit.
  3. Fill the glass with wate so the bottom half of the avocado is submerged.
  4. Wait 2-6 weeks for it to sprout and you can plant it!

#2: Chinese Evergreen

#3: Tomatoes

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow tomatoes indoors | Gardening for beginners

Yes really, tomatoes. They are actually extremely easy to grow indoors and are very tolerant to a lot of indoor settings!

If you would also like to try your hand at starting them from seeds, they are an extremely good plant for beginners to grow!

On average it can take about 6-8 weeks to produce fruit from starting from a seed, but they sprout very quickly (within 1-2 weeks)! It’s extremely gratifying to me watching them grow up and it’s definitely a proud moment when they produce their first yield!

I love growing Aloe for so many reasons! First and foremost, the medicinal properties! This is almost always my go to for fixing up scrapes and cuts and works amazingly!

Aloe Vera is also a very easy plant to grow. They really only need to be watered once every three weeks and have bright, but indirect sunlight!

#5: Herbs

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow herbs indoors | Gardening for beginners

Herbs! These are honestly our favorite household plants that we have growing. They require a little more care than most plants on this list here, but don’t let that put you off to starting your own indoor herb garden!

You can buy your own already grown herb of your choice, but we of course always recommend growing from seeds!

We’ve also already curated a post to growing & caring for your own indoor herb plants!

#6: Snake Plants

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow snake plants indoors | Gardening for beginners

Snake plants are honestly just too cool to not grow in your apartment. They are stunning plants and a great conversation starter!

And more so, everybody will be impressed you grew your own rather than those nasty plastic ones!

They are tolerant to many indoor settings and great for beginners!

We love some unique succulents! You would be surprised by how many varieties of them are out there!

Here’s an entire article about all of the types of Succulents you can start growing!

#9: Ficus Bonsai Tree

????????????

If you are looking to get into Bonsai growing, these trees are probably the best for beginners to start off with!

They are also fairly easy to grow! They require humid environments so it would be best to have a glass tank over them that you can artificially create! Nearly full sunlight is required as well, so if you have any windows in your apartment that get more light than the rest, then that would be the place for them.

#10: African Violets

Best plants to grow in apartments and small living spaces | How to grow plants in apartments | How to grow plants indoors | Indoor gardening tips | How to start an indoor garden | How to grow vegetables indoors | How to grow african violets indoors | Gardening for beginners

In full transparency we have yet to grow African Violets yet, we aren’t actually super huge to growing flowers, but these are the one exception for us that we look forward to starting one day!

They are absolutely gorgeous and unique and would make a great centerpiece! Definitely give growing this a try and come back to let us know how it’s doing!
