No matter if you have a large or a small space, elegant hanging indoor plants can quickly spruce up any room without taking up space. Consider plants with cascading ivy or you can opt into hanging floral plants to add a splash of color. No matter your preference and design style, there is an indoor hanging plant for you.

These hanging plants are meticulously crafted to look exactly like real plants and are a great option for people who lack a green thumb. Not only that, but, watering a real hanging plant can be a hassle, and the right fake plant will look real, but you don’t have to drag a step stool out to water it on a regular basis.
Fake plants lift your mood and you don’t have to worry about dirt or little critters making a home in them. Let’s face it, we are so busy and artificial hanging plants are an easy way to make your home look more beautiful, but they don’t take a lot of time to maintain. Nor do they need a sunny window.
There are so many options when it comes to hanging indoor plants so we’ve created this guide so that you can find the perfect greenery for any room in your home. Let us provide you with a little inspiration.
Choosing Where to Hang Your Indoor Plant
Hanging plants never go out of a style and faux hanging plants don’t require any upkeep so they are going to be part of your space for a very long time. So, it’s important to think through where you’re going to hang your plant.
Hanging plants are great for any room from a living room to a bathroom to a dorm room. Look for spots in your home that look a little bit plain. A hanging indoor plant is going to liven up your choice of room. Pay close attention to corners of your rooms—hanging plants look great in corners.
Another thing to note is where you can hang your plant near a window because having the plant hang near a window will make it look even more like a real plant.
How to Hang Plants from the Ceiling
Artificial plants don’t weigh as much as real plants so a J-hook may do the trick. If you want to be on the safe side, you can easily purchase a hook kit like this one.
If you get the hook kit, you’ll need a ladder, a drill, and a friend to spot you while you are on the ladder.
Mark the spot where you want to hang your plant and drill a hole to the specifications of your hook kit. Be sure that the hole you drill is smaller than your hook so that it fits snuggly in the hole.
Your hanging plant will come with a planter and ropes with a hanger on top so once you have your hook in the ceiling, your plant will be ready to hang. It’s so easy!
Caring for Your Artificial Plant
Unlike real plants, artificial plants don’t require watering, so you’ll spend way less time on a ladder if you opt for a faux hanging plant.
To preserve the beautiful realism of your hanging plant, you will need to remove dust off of it from time to time.
A feather duster will do the trick. So, when you’re dusting your home, just be sure to quickly dust off your hanging plant once a month. Use a duster with an extendable handle like this one.
Every couple of months, do a detailed cleaning of your hanging plant with a toothbrush or small paintbrush. This will allow you to get into the crevices of each leaf, vine, or flower to keep the plant looking fresh and realistic.
