Quick Lighting Tip for Bedroom Houseplants

Lighting is essential when hanging houseplants because if there isn’t enough light, they might not grow as well, depending on what type of plant. So make sure there is the correct amount of natural light coming from windows or lamps before deciding where best to place them.

I wrote a post that discusses what types of plants need what type of lighting that may help you decide when choosing a houseplant for your bedroom: Beginners Guide: The Best Houseplants for the Light You Have in Your Home.

The Best Hanging Houseplants for Your Bedroom 

1) Air Plants (Tillandsia)

The scientific name for these easy to care for houseplants is Tillandsia. Tillandsia Air Plants require very little care and are great for small spaces or your bedroom because they do not take up too much room. You can place one of the plants by itself or create your design out of many Air Plants on an entire wall. All you have to do is soak the air plants for 30 minutes and let them dry overnight once every two weeks! Tillandsias are a wonderfully delicate way to add a simple yet elegant addition to the hanging houseplants in your bedroom.

2) Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

If you are looking for a more tropical feel to your bedroom, spider plants might be a plant that piques your interest!

They are straightforward to plant, making them perfect for individuals who are just starting to decorate using hanging plants in their bedrooms. Spider Plants are perfect for a sunny bedroom (or any room that offers plenty of natural sunlight.) Spider plants will brighten up any space used for relaxation, making it one of the best hanging plants for your bedroom. We have one in our guest bathroom because it gets plenty of light and loves the humidity.

3) String of Pearls

Senecio rowleyanus, commonly known as String of Pearls, is a creeping, perennial, succulent vine of the family Asteraceae. The String of Pearls plant is just plain cute. They like to be near the window with strong natural light for a few hours a day and then indirect light for the rest of the day.

During the growing seasons (spring and summer), you can keep the soil moist, but it needs significantly less water during the winter. If you see that its leaves are flattening, it needs more water. Its leaves should resemble perfectly round balls, or “pearls.”

4) Spiderwort (Varigated Pink & White Variation)

This plant grows incredibly fast and is sometimes considered evasive – but I love it so much! As it grows and matures, it will start to hang over the edge of the hanging planter. I have mine in our bay window in the foyer, and it has started growing up the window. 

This unique houseplant requires 5+ hours of bright but indirect light. If you don’t provide enough light, the pink color will fade but will brighten back up once it gets adequate light.

5) Burro’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)

Succulents, in general, are an excellent way to add character to any bedroom. We have so many scattered throughout our home in our bathrooms, living room, foyer, sunroom, and even our kitchen. Succulents come in a large variety of shapes, sizes, and colors so that they can work in nearly any room in your home!

I love this succulent because of its braided pattern as it grows AND because of its nickname, Burro’s Tail. Burro’s Tail is deficient maintenance, and they are easy to care for when they are in hanging planters because they need very little attention.

6) Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum Aureum)

I love Devil’s Ivy because the leaves are two-toned (green & white) and look beautiful in our minimalist gray-walled bedroom. This plant is one of the best hanging plants for the bedroom because it will do well in indirect light or low light. Devil’s Ivy will need watering when soil is dry to the touch, and I only recommend fertilizing it during its growing months (Spring & Summer). They’re also easy on your wallet, so it’s not too much of an investment. Plus, they’ll make your home feel like a jungle oasis!

7) Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

Spider Pants are not scary, but they are beautiful! Their leaves look like long striped blades of grass, and I love how they look when planted in a hanging planter.
