Where can I get hanging plants

Hanging plants: This is how plants grow at lofty heights

For plants whose shoots should dangle freely, pots made of plastic, wood or ceramic are hung on the wall or ceiling. The pots for hanging plants often have fixed brackets or chains and are attached with the appropriate brackets. The macrame technique, with which a retaining net can be tied around any flower pot, is also popular.

If you do not want to hang up the plants directly, shelves, cabinets, boxes, stools and pillars are of course also suitable as a location. So you can set up or hang your plants at many different heights and bring the particularly lively "jungle atmosphere" into your home.

Regardless of the actual method of attachment or the appearance of the plant, you should consider the individual requirements of the desired plant in terms of space and care. This also applies to hanging houseplants: Check beforehand whether the plant prefers sunlight or shade. Avoid very dark corners and do not place or hang the pots too high so that daylight can actually reach the plants and at the same time you are not faced with unsolvable problems when watering.

We also recommend taking a closer look at the subsurface before choosing a location. It is always possible that some irrigation water drips from the pot or dead leaves fall off. A light-colored carpet or sensitive parquet floor are of course less suitable (at least without additional protection) than a wipeable tile floor.

Make sure that the support structures are stable enough to support the weight even when the earth is wet. The plants should not hang too crookedly so that the pot does not fall immediately if it is touched. Even watering should not cause flooding.
