The do’s & don’ts for hanging plants


  • When you add hanging plants to your space, take the circumstances of your house into account. For example, is it hot or cold?
  • Before you add the plants, make sure there is no draft because plants won’t be happy with that.
  • Take the light requirements of your plants into account. Can they handle direct sunlight, or do they prefer to hang in indirect light?
  • Hanging plants can easily grow too long. Do you find them too long? Then simply cut them a bit shorter or cut them.


  • Be careful not to hang your plants too high, otherwise watering will become a challenge. If you hang them at an easily accessible height, the chance you will often water your plants is bigger than if you have to grab a ladder each time.
  • Never hang plants above a seat. You simply don’t sit comfortable with a plant above your head.
