If you are a little obsessed with your houseplants, your apartment is probably a dream oasis filled with plants. As your collection has grown, you’ve probably also found that your plants are unfortunately taking up too much floor space. A simple 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 wood 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 little tactile as growing a plant in a grounded pot.
The hesitation most people have with hanging plants is that they can cause damage if you don’t do it right. However, all of this can be easily avoided if you simply double your hanging plant. The outdoor pot should be your decorative pot that’s completely sealed – we’re not talking about any drainage holes at all – and it has chains or rope attached 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 (culprit!).
If you double your potted plant, you can also easily place it in a sunnier space for a few hours if you find that it isn’t getting enough light where it hangs. It also means that you can easily swap plants until you find one that works well for you.
