1. Silver Satin Pothos (Scindapsus pictus)
Silver Satin Pothos makes for a beautiful hanging basket plant. With soft, velvety heart-shaped leaves, the cascading mix of light green and cream can add a level of polish to any room. This plants hails from Southeast Asia and prefers indirect light and high humidity.
2. Heartleaf Philodendron (Philodendron cordatum)
An all-time favorite, the Heartleaf Philodendron is a great plant for a hanger, especially for beginner plant parents. This species is practically indestructible, though ideally it prefers indirect light with watering once a week when the soil is dry to the touch.
3. Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
Another all-star for beginner plant parents, the Pothos is a great companion to the Heartleaf Philodendron. Both are easy to care for, require indirect light and watering once a week when soil is dry to the touch.
4. Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum)
Staghorn ferns are a great hanging plant if you're looking for a statement piece for a bathroom or dimly light room. They are easy to care for, only requiring high humidity and indirect light. They can also be hung directly on a wall, rather than from a basket, providing visual interest on other wall art.
5. Jungle Cacti (Epiphyllum sp., Rhipsalis sp.)
Jungle Cacti is a common name that can refer to several genera of cacti that grown in or near rainforests. They look quite different than desert cacti, in that they often lack the sharp, distinguishing spines. Jungle cacti tend to be fleshier and because they find their homes in the tops of tress, they make excellent hanging plants. They prefer bright light (indirect, but most will tolerate direct) and watering once a week, or when soil is dry to the touch.
