The trend of hanging plants
Raising and hanging indoor plants is the best way to free floor space (especially if you live in a small apartment) but not only! This new trend brings character and relief to your interior. You can play with height and create visual effects. For the effect to be successful, you must of course carefully choose the flower pots. They must be aesthetic, in harmony with the decoration and different sizes to give relief to the whole.
Suspended plants: where to place them?
To avoid cluttering the space, it is important to place your hanging plants in a place that does not interfere with the passage. Avoid corridors or doors. Prefer the corner of a room, above a piece of furniture, in front of a window or near a wall. Choose a bright place except for plants that need shade.
Suspended plants: which plants to choose?
To choose your suspended plants, you must take into account certain criteria such as:
- the location: sunny or shady
- maintenance: prefer plants that need little water
- the shape of the plant: plants with few leaves and cacti are to be avoided because they do not fall down and will not be visible from below. Opt more for succulent or climbing plants whose branches will fall from the pot.
