Putting plants in the house whether it’s in the yard or in a room in the house has actually become a habit for some people. But with social media, having plants in the house is a booming trend. Everyone wants to learn how to make the most of their space, even hanging their plants in the air. Many people want to get their hands dirty with soil and experiment with plant life.
There are many beginners trying to get into the world of plants and you may be one of them. But there is one thing you need to remember, plants are still living things, you still need to take minimal care, and if you are not ready to accept this fact, maybe you can consider buying fake greenery. Slowly when you are ready, you can just try to buy real greenery which is not replaceable with fake plants, and actually many people out there have a mixture of real and fake plants in their homes depending on what their living conditions are.
For example, you happen to live in an apartment that happens to be next to another apartment that is higher, so even opening the window you won’t get bright light because it’s blocked by the shadow of this apartment. Even though there are some articles that say there are plants that do not need sunlight at all to survive, you need to realize that any plant will not thrive in a room that never gets natural light. So until you move to a better residence with windows flooded with sunlight, for now, you should use fake plants in your dark apartment space.
Some of the plants recommended here are best pet-friendly indoor hanging plants. Because maybe you have nosy pets like dogs, cats, or rabbits who like to bite your things. Hanging plants like Devil’s Ivy for example look beautiful and have the fact that they are almost impossible to kill even if they are minimally cared for and stay green even when kept in low light. It should be noted, the heart-shaped Devil’s Ivy leaves are very similar to the Philodendron Heartleaf so that some beginners are often confused/mistaken with the Philodendron. Although this plant is one of the best indoor hanging plants for low light, it is poisonous to your pets such as dogs or cats. So be careful for those of you who have pets in choosing ornamental plants for the house.
You can choose some of the following recommended hanging indoor plants:
Boston fern is very tolerant because although this plant likes moist soil, it can also thrive in drought. The shape of the leaves is dense and slightly serrated with a bright green color. If the plant looks wilted, make sure it has enough moisture, and spray it with water several times a week. You can breed Boston Fern by removing the shoots from the base of the plant.
Once popular in the 70’s, spider plants are again in demand as a beautiful hanging plant and the easiest to care for. After the spider plant grows, you will be impressed by its appearance with its beautiful thin leaves, gently curving and hanging from the basket, even more, dramatic if there are branches. This plant can be propagated by division which is a good method even if the branches are not growing. If this plant has babies, you can propagate it in water or in the soil while it is still attached to its mother.
If you have a room that is rich in sunlight, then you can choose jasmine as one of the best indoor hanging plants for full sun. Jasmine grows flowers that smell very nice and are pure white. Make sure the soil doesn’t dry out completely, water the jasmine plant at least three or four times a week, and the flowers will grow beautifully.
This cactus has pale green drooping stems which is very attractive, usually, this cactus grows attached to other plants with a medium of moss and rotting leaves. Mistletoe Cactus is very easy to care for and the stems can grow up to 20 feet in the wild. This cactus produces small flowers and berries that taste similar to grapes. You can breed the Mistletoe Cactus like any other succulents by picking up the chunks and letting them callus over.
