Indoor Hanging Planter
The botanical trend is still going strong, with more of us inviting greenery into our homes. If you’re not naturally green-fingered, hanging planters are a great way to start small and give you the courage to grow your plant assortment at home.
Indoor hanging plants are one of the most low-maintenance methods to bring freshness and elegance to your living space.
They’re simple to use, don’t take up much room, can be hung away from dogs, and provide more light. They can also assist to filter the air and relieve tension as a bonus.
They also make a feature in small living spaces or those that lack outdoor space.
Healthy, glossy indoor plants, without a doubt, make a significant difference in a room, adding mood and personality.
Trailing houseplants such as ferns, spider plants, and a string of pearls, look most attractive in hanging pots but they could be used for small cacti or succulents too.
Natural materials like jute give a retro vibe – this trend is a big nod to Seventies interiors – but marble and metal pots give the look a more contemporary spin.
Ceramics also make beautiful pairings with foliage – there are plenty out there which look like collectible studio pottery, but come at a reasonable price.
Hooks are rarely included, so you’ll need to make a separate purchase suited to your ceiling type. Planters also look effective in groups: hanging from beams, the corners of porches, or high shelves.
All of the hangers we’ve included are intended for indoor use unless stated otherwise.
Modern concrete look hanging planters with marble patterns, unique texture, and distinguishing features, is an ideal way to enjoy your favorite hanging plants and flowers.

This ceramic pot has a basic shape with a smooth finish. It comes in earthy green, black or white – all of which contrast well with the three rough straps.
