How you hang them, and at what lengths, is up to you. Whether you’re drawn to a 70’s macramé hanging planter with a cord basket or metallic planters for more a more mod look, IKEA has terrific vertical garden and hanging plant ideas to work with. Perhaps the trickiest part about keeping your indoor hanging jungle verdant is knowing how to water them correctly. The last thing you want to do is ruin your hardwood floors or white shag rug with constant water and soil spills. In comparison to plants kept near ground level, your hanging plants will also need a little more water since hot air rises and tends to be drier at higher levels. The best option for indoor water drainage systems are a pot within a pot system or an attached tray system.
