It’s no secret that plants add life to any living space. Sometimes, however, you are limited on shelf space. In cases like these, a hanging plant may just be the ticket! What’s more, you will find artificial hanging plants require very little care and nurturing; they are just lovely to look at.
Identifying Whether Hanging Plants Are Right For Your Room
Before you begin putting up plants, there are several key ideas to consider: supplies, location, and hardware. When choosing your artificial hanging plant, you’ll want to select one with a container and the ability to hang the plant. This may be from a ceiling hanger or from the wall.
Whatever you choose, be sure you consider your room when you are selecting your supplies. One of the things you will look into while choosing the type of hanger will be the location where you wish to hang your artificial plant. You should think about how the hanging plants look and consider the weight of your artificial plant. Is your wall or ceiling strong enough to bear the weight?
You’ll also want to consider the hardware you’ll need to use to hang your plant. Using the appropriate type of anchor will help ensure that you do not damage your walls.
Be Creative In Your Options For Hanging Plants
Don’t feel limited when hanging your plants. What you first imagine where and how you would hang them, keeping in mind your feng shui, the ceiling probably felt like the most obvious choice, but there are also some very clever ways you can hang your artificial plants that do not involve hanging from the ceiling.
If you’re set on hanging them from the ceiling because you have a great window area to do it, consider suspending a shelf from the ceiling and putting plants on top of it. This is a creative take on hanging plants because the individual plants won’t hang from the ceiling. Instead, they will rest on a shelf that hangs from the ceiling. Another clever idea is to take S hooks and hang them from anything sturdy attached to the walls or ceiling. Then, hang your plans from those S hooks.
If you are going for a more boho style, consider hanging your plants from an attractive branch that you have hanging from your wall. Another way to creatively hang your plants is by using a coat rack. To add a bit of whimsy to your display, consider using an antique coat rack.
Find Artificial Hanging Plants That Match Your Decor
You obviously do not need to worry about watering or lighting with artificial plants. As a result, you have a vast array of choices to choose from. The colorful hanging plants you find will give you many choices from which to choose. Within these options, you are sure to find something that isn’t just beautiful, it complements the decor you already have in place.
This Amazon search shows some options at your disposal, and you will notice that most of them are flowing, green plants. When looking for a plant, after you know where you want to put it, you should also consider how far down you wish the plant to hang. After all, many of these choices hang pretty far down.
Remember That The Container Is Just As Important As The Plant
Remember that the container you decide to put the artificial plant is very important when choosing your materials. In this case, it isn’t important for draining or plant health, it is important from a decor perspective. In a suspended plant situation, the pot will probably be more visible than a plant that sits on a shelf or outside your home.
It may not surprise you to learn that Amazon has some really beautiful options that will suit nearly any purpose or decorative style you have. If you aren’t sure what to choose, I highly recommend choosing a white pot. That way, it will blend right in with little contrast opportunity.
Rotate Your Artificial Hanging Plants Periodically For A Change In Decor
When people have real hanging plants, they need to rotate them to get even access to the sun. Though these plants are artificial, you can still rotate them. No, it isn’t for access to sunlight, but it will allow you to change up your decor. This change is important because it will keep your decorations feeling fresh, even if it is the same items. This can be helpful because you will be less likely to purchase new decor if the items you already have suit all of your needs.
Cleaning Your Artificial Hanging Plants Is Important And Can Be Easy
Even though you do not need to water your hanging plants, there are still a few things you will want to do to care for your artificial arrangement. You will undoubtedly want to clean your plant, and you can accomplish this in a number of different ways.
This article outlines several various methods in detail, but we will share a few here as well. If your plants are on the smaller size, you can wipe down the plant quite easily using a bit of water and gentle dish soap on a soft towel. You should also be able to remove dust quite quickly using a hand held Swiffer duster. If your plant is on the large size, your shower is going to be the best way to clean your plan. The warm water will wash away any dirt and dust on the plant. After the water finishes cleaning your plant, you should leave it in the shower (with the water off, of course) to dry.
