I absolutely love hanging plants! Plants that trail are one of the easiest ways to get jungle vibes in your home.
Pothos are a classic hanging plant, which are my favorite, but there are so many others not to be forgotten. In this article, I’ll go over my favorite indoor hanging plants.
Silver Satin Pothos
Silver Satin Pothos, also known as Scindapsus Pictus ‘Argyraeus’ is a beautiful houseplant with silvery leaves that will continue to trail down its pot. Other Scindapsus plants that are beautiful trailing plants are Scindapsus Silvery Anne,
Cebu Blue Pothos
Cebu Blue Pothos is one of my favorite plant of all time! Its silvery blue-green elongated leaves are just stunning and would look great in a hanging basket.
Baltic Blue Pothos
Baltic Blue Pothos is another Epipremnum Pinnatum variety with elongated glossy dark green leaves. This is a great one to put on a shelf and let its vines trail down. If you’re wondering what the difference between Cebu Blue and Baltic Blue is, check out this article.
Marble Queen Pothos
Marble Queen Pothos was one of my first houseplants I bought for myself, after my Monstera Deliciosa. I bought it in a four inch pot and it has grown into such a beauty with multiple stems trailing! I have even propagated this plant and gifted it to my Grandma.
String of Hearts
Ceropegia Woodii is another one of my prized houseplants. They have such dainty stems and leaves so they add a very elegant touch to any home decor.
String of Bananas
String of Bananas, also sometimes called String of Beans, scientifically named Curio Radicans is another trailing succulent. This plant needs direct sunlight and always keep the soil moist.
String of Pearls
Senecio Rowleyanus, or String of Pearls houseplant, is another trailing vine not to be missed. I love how this plant looks in a hanging basket, such perfection!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the classic Spider Plant or seen it from either your Grandparents collection or your parents, but if you haven’t, it is a plant with thin, long leaves that grow plantelets at the bottom which you cut off for propagation.
The velvety leaves of Philodendron Micans make this plant such an eye catcher! The trailing stems on this plant is able to add beauty to all home decor.
With dark green and light green variegated leaves, Philodendron Brasil is a perfect trailing houseplant with green foliage.
My Grandma gave me a Maranta Leuconeura after my Grandpa’s funeral and I loved how the leaves looked with pink, green, and white striping.
Monstera Siltepecana is a beautiful plant with deep veins in its leaves. This plant needs medium light, so place it only a few feet from a west or south facing window.
Monstera Adansonii is another great hanging plant with holes or fenestrations in the leaves.
While you usually see Monstera Dubia climbing a wood plank, this plant can be a good trailing plant as well.
I love Peperomia Hope! With its thick and circular leaf shape and its gorgeous green color, this is one of my favorite Peperomias.
String of Turtles (Peperomia Prostrata)
While this String of Turtles could of gone under the String Ofs section, I wanted to put it under the Peperomia hanging plants, as this is a Peperomia Prostrata. The beautiful leaves resembling a turtles shell is so beautiful.
Hoyas are such beautiful trailing plants! Each and every variety works great as a trailer or you can attach a trellis to them and they love that, as they do love to attach to things and climb. Hoya Retusa will have tons of trailing stems in a hanging pot.
Hoya Australis Lisa
As I mentioned above, Hoyas like to either climb or trail. As seen above, this Hoya Australis Lisa is is climbing but it can also be left to trail in its pot.
With its dark and dimpled leaves, Hoya Macrophylla has a more unique color scheme than some of the other Hoyas. If you give this plant full sun, it will get kind of a red color around the edges.
This image of Hoya Krohniana is exactly how Hoyas like to grow, sometimes they trail, sometimes they want to climb up. So planting them in a hanging basket allows for them to do either.
