    Here You Will Find the Best Indoor Plants for Hanging Baskets

    Welcome to the vertical gardening trend. A houseplant on the windowsill or a tree nestled in the corner can enhance your interior design in a way that regular flower pots cannot.

    Of course, it's also fun to mix and match plants of different heights, foliage types, and flower colors.

    Nothing complements climbing plants better than a raised pot. When adding hanging baskets to an existing indoor plant collection, create a layered look with floor-to-ceiling plants.

    Vary the colors and shapes of your indoor plants to create a unique look or choose similar plants to maintain consistency.

    Take a look at the top eight indoor plants ready to decorate your hanging baskets for the kitchen, living room, or even the bathroom.

    Chenille Plant (Acalypha hispida)

    Hanging Baskets

    It's hard to resist touching Acalypha Hispida furry kittens. Caterpillars are fun specimens for the annual marijuana garden, but they also lend themselves well to growing indoors, as long as there is clear south or east-facing window so they can make money.

    Caterpillar plants also love lots of water and nutrients, and you can kill two birds with one stone just by watering them with compost.

    • Light: Full sun outdoors, indoors high levels of bright, indirect light
    • Water: Maintain moderate moisture but not soggy
    • Color varieties: Red

    String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)

    Hanging Baskets

    The unusual succulent pearls from the pearl chain look great in contemporary homes that feature bold, modern design elements.

    Like most succulents, the heel plant thrives in bright light and in soil that is kept on the dry side. If your plant is happy, it can even reward you with small white flowers.

    Cut the string of beads if the ends are too sparse.

    • Light: Full to partial
    • Water:  Keep lightly moist during the growing season
    • Color varieties: White

    Lipstick Vine (Aeschynanthus)

    Hanging Baskets

    Eschynanthus specimens make winter families happy when they bloom for several weeks.

    Lipstick vines come in red, pink, or orange and are great houseplants because they tolerate low light conditions and frequent watering. Buy the largest plant you can find to see the flowers in the first season.

    Don't prune the vine with lipstick until flowering is complete, as buds form at the tips of the plant.

    • Light: Bright indirect light
    • Water: Regularly; more in spring and summer and less during winter
    • Color varieties: Red, pink, and orange

    Black Pepper Vine (Piper nigrum)

    Hanging Baskets

    The same plant that spices up your meals is also an interesting plant for indoor hanging baskets.

    Black pepper vines need enough light to produce the fruits we know as peppercorns, but it may be worth using a little extra artificial light to accomplish this feat. Bell pepper plants can be several years old before they see flowers.

    Plants grow to a reasonable meter in container growing. Summer vacations outdoors help maintain the vigor of the plant.

    • Light: Partial sun
    • Water: Always keep the soil slightly moist
    • Color varieties: White

    Goldfish Plant (Nematanthus)

    Hanging Baskets

    Named for its beautiful orange flowers, Nematanthus is also known as Christmas holly due to its winter bloom.

    The goldfish plant is a small specimen that can adorn a small basket that hangs over the kitchen sink or in a sink. Plants grow well in low light or with north-facing windows.

    The goldfish plant is an epiphyte (aerial plant) that uses trees for support in its natural habitat. Try a thick orchid mix to keep the roots healthy.

    • Light: Low light
    • Water: Water thoroughly then allow the top layer of soil to dry
    • Color varieties: Orange, yellow with red edges

    Queen's Tears (Billbergia Nutans)

    Hanging Baskets

    Like other bromeliads, queen harrowing plants produce many shoots or buds that you can remove and replant to increase your collection.

    Although queen tears grow well in strong, low-light conditions, plants should have a few days to begin fall bud formation. Therefore, allowing the plant to perceive only natural light offers the best flowering results.

    Queen's tears are colder tolerant than many houseplants and do great if temperatures exceed 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • Light: Bright indirect light
    • Water: Water the center of the rosette daily; water soil lightly; mist regularly
    • Color varieties: Pink, purple, yellow, or green

    Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia or Nepenthes)

    Hanging Baskets

    Pitcher plants from the hardy Sarracenia genus exhibit upright pitchers, but those of the tropical Nepenthes genus are intended for hanging baskets with their dangling pitchers.

    Tropical pitchers have very specific growth requirements but are easy to grow when these conditions are met: high light, no fertilizer, and constant moisture.

    Although pitcher plants are carnivorous, resist the urge to fill pitchers with flies and grasshoppers, which may rot.

    The occasional gnat is more than enough for an indoor pitcher plant.

    • Light: Needs vary from full to dappled sun depending on the variety
    • Water: Keep moist and well-drained
    • Color varieties: Purple, red, maroon, white, yellow, or pink with some multi-colored varieties

    Satin Pothos (Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus)

    Pothos plants like the Scindapsus Pictus Argyraeus are so popular for beginners because they are classified as "no-kill" plants by some.

    Variegated leaves tumble over the sides of hanging baskets or cling to supports by aerial rootlets. The satin pothos likes low light and moist soil but will tolerate dry spells.

    • Light: Low light
    • Water: Moist to dry soil
    • Color varieties: Variegated foliage; small white flowers
