Houseplants are a great way to add character and personality to any room. They can also help clean the air in your home, which is especially important in bedrooms!

As you all know by now, I am obsessed with houseplants. We have them in our bathroom, sunroom, kitchen, foyer, living room, hallway, entryway, and even our bedroom. I’ve also started running out of places for floor planters that we’ve started hanging! I can’t wait for you to add some hanging plants to your bedroom or anywhere in your home.

I’ve rounded up the best hanging houseplants that would be beautiful in any bedroom. Give these plants a try – they’re easy to care for and will make your bedroom feel fresh all year round! You’ll love the way they bring life into this space. Plus, it’s fun finding just the right spot for them so that they hang beautifully.

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.

You can keep the soil moist during the growing seasons (spring and summer), 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) 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.

5) Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)

Pothos plants are incredibly popular among indoor plant enthusiasts because they are low-maintenance and forgiving. They can thrive in various light conditions, including low light, and require minimal watering.

Pothos plants are known for their air-purifying properties. They can help remove common indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air, making them a great choice for improving indoor air quality.

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.

Houseplants Are Great for Your Bedroom

Houseplants are beneficial for bedrooms because they improve air quality, increase humidity, reduce stress, add aesthetic appeal, and can even help with noise reduction. Houseplants can be beneficial for your bedroom in several ways:

  1. Improved Air Quality: Houseplants are natural air purifiers that can help remove air pollutants and toxins. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during photosynthesis, which can lead to better air quality in your bedroom.
  2. Increased Humidity: Some houseplants release water vapor through a process called transpiration. This can help increase the humidity levels in your bedroom, which is especially beneficial in dry indoor environments or during the winter months.
  3. Stress Reduction and Relaxation: Studies have shown that being around plants and nature can reduce stress and promote relaxation. Having houseplants in your bedroom can create a calming and soothing environment, helping you sleep better and feel more at ease.
  4. Aesthetic Appeal: Houseplants can add beauty and aesthetic appeal to your bedroom, making it more pleasant and inviting.
  5. Noise Reduction: Some large and dense houseplants can help absorb sound and reduce noise levels in your bedroom, creating a quieter and more peaceful atmosphere.

However, it’s essential to choose houseplants that are suitable for indoor environments and consider factors such as light levels, humidity, and temperature in your bedroom. Additionally, if you have allergies or sensitivities to plants, it’s essential to select non-allergenic varieties. Overall, when cared for properly, houseplants can be a wonderful addition to your bedroom, promoting a healthier and more enjoyable living space.


Q: How often should I water hanging plants?

A: It’s best to water your hanging plants when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry. This can vary depending on the type of plant, so always look for specific care instructions for your particular houseplant.

your houseplant’s specific care requirements

A: Some hanging plants may require direct sunlight to thrive, while others can do well in low light or indirect sunlight. It’s best to research your houseplant’s specific care requirements before deciding where it should go and how much sunlight it needs.

Q: How often should I fertilize hanging plants?

A: Most hanging plants only need fertilizer every few months during the growing season. Always look for specific care instructions for your particular houseplant before fertilizing it. Be sure to use a fertilizer specifically designed for houseplants, as other types of fertilizers may burn your plants’ roots.

Q: What is the best way to hang my houseplant?

A: The best way to hang your houseplant depends on the type of plant and where you intend to hang it. Generally speaking, it’s best to use a sturdy hook or hanger that is rated to support the weight of your houseplant (including water and soil). Ensure that any hanging cords and wires avoid extending too close to leaves or branches–this could cause damage.


You can now find various hanging houseplants that are perfect for any bedroom. Whether you choose Tillandsia, Spider Plant, String of Pearls, Burro’s Tail, or Pothos – these hanging plants will bring life and beauty to your bedroom. Consider spicing up your home with one of these easy-to-care-for options today!
