The Best Easy Indoor Hanging Plants

Spider Plant: Chlorophytum comosum,  Green or variegated, spider plants love spring too. Start with a small plant in a 6-inch basket, add water and morning sun and watch in amazement. These are some of the easiest care hanging houseplant specimens, adaptable to a range of conditions. Feed after watering with a complete houseplant food or one high in nitrogen. In a couple of months, you’ll have stems holding babies spilling over the sides. This plant looks elegant hanging in an indoor window. Bonus! Baby plantlets can be removed & put into more planters!

Wandering Jew: Tradescantia zebrina, also known as Spiderwort will quickly fill your basket and cascade over the sides. This is available in a range of greens and purples. If you live in Florida or California, make sure it doesn’t escape your basket, as it grows rapidly there. This is a good thing when growing it as a houseplant. The happy Wandering Jew offers tiny pink blooms when located in the morning sun, but is happy in partial shade. An easy to care for houseplant, and will grow well outside in spring as well.

Petunia: Petunia × atkinsiana, Start this one from seeds if you want or purchase a mature one if you’re unsure of your seed starting abilities. This is one of the most popular hanging basket plants. Easy-care and eye-catching for a sunny spot in the home. Colorful blooms will bloom often. Clip blooms out as they fade to be rewarded with more blossoms. Just, remember to keep the soil moist!

Nasturtiums: Tropaeolum, is also easy to grow from seed, bountiful orange and yellow flowers bloom prolifically through the summer. Flowers are edible, so get creative with them. If you are having problems with with aphids outside, you can plant Nasturtium close by because it is known as an aphid trap. Get seeds here.

Stonecrop Sedum ‘Angelina’:  Sedum rupestre is beautiful, bright green foliage will quickly fill the spring planted hanging basket. All ground cover sedums grow happily in hanging baskets, both indoors and outside. While they might die back in winter, they will return in spring as they are perennial plants. Starting from seeds is less expensive. 

Silver Philodendron: Scindapsus pictus; has beautiful silvery patches on the otherwise green leaves. It is beautiful in a hanging planter. Silver Philodendrons do well in low to medium light and do not need much water. 

Indoor Hanging Plant Care Tips

  • Moisten well-draining potting mix and fill 3/4 to the top of your hanging planter.
  • When growing from seed, keep the soil moist.
  • Avoid direct sun until plants are growing well.
  • Water young plants regularly. Always feed into moist soil.
  • Gradually acclimate all plants to a full sun atmosphere, if needed.
  • Hanging baskets can also spend time outside to become lush and beautiful and decorate the indoors part-time, if you’d prefer!
