It’s fair to say that Joanna Gaines, of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” fame, has kindled the curiosity of many wanting to plant and observe their own seeds transforming into colorful and fragrant plants. But what about those who don’t have the space, time, or, dare I say, green thumb to take on such a project? Well, not only are hanging planters your answer, but they are on trend.
Whether you prefer your planters be suspended from the ceiling or staggered on a wall, it is undeniable that you will be adding a major touch of organic elegance to your home. From sweet and calming lavender-filled nurseries to your favorite herbs planted in boxes near the kitchen sink, this trend will literally be sprouting up in every room of the house.
Design styles are limitless; meaning this is definitely an
easy and inexpensive trend that you should try. If your style swings bohemian, consider suspending a macramé plant holder filled with English ivy. This plant is not only pretty, but it’s air purifying. If modern is more your style, use slate or geometric pottery and fill with colorful succulents.
Don’t have a green thumb? Splurge on pretty faux plants that match your style. Because these plants will be hung higher than eye level, no one will ever know.
Want to give this a shot? Take this list to your local nursery to get started. Happy planting!
-English ivy (Hedera helix)
-String of hearts (Ceropegia linearis woodii)
-String of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)
