Our Top 25 Favorite Hanging Plants for 2022

Need some fresh air in your indoor space? Crave more greenery but live in a tight area that limits the amount of space you have? Artificial hanging plants are about to help you blossom because, well, they hang from the ceiling and don't take up too much space.
Live in a castle, apartment, house, or dorm? Don't worry; you can elegantly hang indoor plants that spruce up your space without compromising square feet. Some plants you might want to consider are cascading Ivy, florals for a burst of color, or some ferns. No matter your aesthetic or design style, there is a perfect outdoor hanging plant for you.

We pride ourselves on designing hanging plants that look incredibly lifelike by partnering with top interior decorators and horticulturists with an eye to detail.
Not only that, but watering a real hanging plant can be a hassle, and the right fake plant will look natural, but you don't have to drag a step stool out to water it regularly.

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 for 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.

How to Find Your Fake Hanging Plant

Connect with the space you want to decorate and imagine the possibilities of hanging plants. With so many options, ranging from long, elegant vines to bushy ferns or bright floral arrangements, every theme and color can be matched and complimented. There is really no wrong choice, so let your heart guide you and see what sparks joy.

Find a Suitable Location

Silk hanging plants never go out of 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 essential 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. An indoor hanging 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.

Dining Room - Hanging plants are a centerpiece that add color and life to your dining room while leaving plenty of space. Since they don’t have to be set directly on the table, they are a great option for smaller areas or when you just want a clear space.

Make Sure Your Hanging Plant Fits Your Space

Consider not only the size of the pot and plant but also any vines or foliage that will hang down. This adds length from the bottom of the pot and means you may have to hang the plant higher to prevent obstruction. We offer a wide variety of planter materials and designs, so choose one that will meld with your decor theme.

Caring for Your Artificial Plant

Unlike their real counterparts, artificial plants need no watering or maintenance, meaning you can spend more time on things you love.
To ensure your faux plant can last years, we recommend removing dust using a feather duster about once a month.

A feather duster will do the trick. So, when you're dusting your home, be sure to dust off your hanging plant once a month quickly. 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 each leaf's crevices, vine, or flower to keep the plant looking fresh and realistic.

5 Hanging Plants From Ceiling Ideas

  1. Incorporate artificial flowers - Incorporating artificial flowers into your hanging plants is always a good idea as it can add beauty and color to the plant on your ceiling.
  2. Hang plants with a macrame - Macrame is a boho-chic decor that surged in popularity in recent years and hanging your plants with it will definitely elevate your home aesthetics.
  3. Hang multiple plants together to create a fuller look - When it comes to planting decors, the more, the better. Do not hesitate to collect more and more plants as each would help in creating a fuller look that you will always adore.
  4. Rope Hanging Planters - If you're looking for a simple yet creative way to hang your plants, then create a rope planter by swirling a rope and dabbing a hot glue to form a planter that you can hang from your ceiling.
  5. Hang Plants in a Curtain Rod - Another clever hack is to attach a curtain rod from your ceiling that will allow you to easily hang your hanging plants and rearrange them anytime as well.
