Hanging plant pots: 7 indoor hanging baskets and planters to give your plants a stylish edge

Posted by for Plants

Take your houseplants to the next level with these on-trend hanging plant pots and baskets, perfect for achieving that indoor jungle feel.

Of all the possible ways of displaying plants in your home, we’re a stickler for a good hanging basket or pot.

On top of the fact that hanging your plants is a great way to preserve precious floor space, it also transforms your trailing houseplant from decorative feature to statement piece.

And they’re easy to install, too: if you’ve got an empty picture rail, curtain pole or bookshelf, all you need is an S hook to get started (alternatively, you can install your own hook or pole to suspend your plants). 

Thanks to the world’s ongoing houseplant obsession, there are loads of options to choose from when it comes to picking a hanging pot, so you’re sure to find one that suits your individual taste and style.

Ready to give the hanging plant trend a go? Keep reading to discover our edit of the best hanging plant pots to give any room that indoor jungle feel.
