You ultimate guide to Indoor hanging planters

You ultimate guide to Indoor hanging planters

Indoor hanging planters are a beautiful way to add life to any space. But they can also be a bit tricky. How often should they be watered? And how do you avoid getting water all over your sofa and/or floor? In this blog post, we’ll answer your most burning hanging planter questions. Shall we dive in?

Q: Does a hanging planter need drainage holes?

A: Yes! Hanging planters, just like any other planters, need a drainage hole. A lot of planters and plant pots were not created with your plant’s needs in mind. When you plant your plant in a planter that doesn’t have a drainage hole, you’re setting it up for failure. A drainage hole makes sure that when you water your plant, the excess water does not stay in the planter (which creates root rot, which equals very sad plants). When we designed our loop hanging planters, we made sure that won’t happen to your plants, so all our wall hanging planters come with drainage holes.

Q: Do small hanging planter come with drainage too?

Not all small hanging planters come with drainage, but ours do! You can combine our mini hanger with our smart mini planter Ella or our smart mini planter Maia. both small hanging planters come with a drainage hole and a built -in drainage saucer. You can find them both here.

Q: How do you hang plants with drainage?

A: Now, here’s where it gets a bit confusing. How can you hang plants with drainage, without the excess water getting all over your carpet and floor? With our Loop hanging planter, you don’t have to worry about it! We designed our hanging planters with a special drainage saucer placed right underneath the planter. You can find all our indoor hanging planters right here. 

Q: What's the best way to water hanging plants? Can I water my hanging plant while it’s hanging or should I take it down to water it?

A: You should do both! For regular quick waterings you can water your hanging plant while it’s still hanging, but try to take it out every once in a while for a thorough watering. This way you can also get a closer look at it, see how your plant is doing, and even dust off its leaves every once in a while. 

Q: If I’m taking my hanging planter down, where should I be watering it?

A: The sink or bathtub. You can also water it outside in the garden- whatever works for you. Watering it in these places will allow you to make a mess and really hose it down. Have any more watering questions? Check out the full hanging planter watering blog here.

Q: Should I get a ceramic hanging planter?

A: While many of the hanging planters on the market are made of ceramic, we don’t recommend it. Ceramic is heavy and can shatter and break into a million pieces. All our hanging planters are made of light weight aluminum, making it east for you to take down and water, and even know when your plant is thirsty (when it’s light, the soil is dry and you should water it again).

Q: How do you hang a hanging planter?

Our hanging planter only takes minutes to hang and comes with all the hardware you need. You can find our full tutorial right here.

wall hanging planter

Wall hanging planters

A classic twist on the traditional macrame hangers, these plant hangers are designed to help you take your plant out easily when it needs watering.

Since we know watering hanging planters is super tricky, we took this a step further. we designed a self watering planter to go perfectly with your plant hanger. The self watering planters come with a drainage hole, making sure the water doesn’t get stuck in the bottom of the planter (avoiding root rot, woohoo!), and the excess water goes into a separate saucer placed beneath the planter- instead of dripping all over the carper. Our unique wall hanging planters come in four different color strings, and you can find our modern hanging planters RIGHT HERE.

Our thoughtful, modern ceiling planters will help you create the space you’ve always dreamed of.

The newest addition to these indoor hanging planters is a handcrafted ceiling hook- completing the elegant, aesthetically pleasing look. You can find all our ceiling planters right here.

You can pair our mini hangers with our round mini planter Ella or our cylinder mini planter Maia. You can find them both here.

Common questions we receive about hanging planters:

Do hanging planters need drainage holes?

Yes! All planters should have a drainage hole. A lot of planters and plant pots were not created with your plant’s needs in mind. When you plant your plant in a planter that doesn’t have a drainage hole, you’re setting it up for failure. A drainage hole makes sure that when you water your plant, the excess water does not stay in the planter (which creates root rot, which equals very sad plants).

What kind of pots are best for hanging plants?

The best pots for hanging plants are self watering planters with a drainage hole and a built-in self watering system.

 Our self watering planters are perfect for hanging plants for a number of reasons:

  1. They have a drainage hole, making sure water doesn’t get stuck in the roots and avoiding root rot.

  2. Our self watering planters have a separate saucer for excess water. Once the water goes down the drainage hole, it settles in the separate saucer until your plant is thirsty again. This makes sure that when you water, the excess water doesn’t spill all over your carpet or floor- a common problem when watering hanging planters.

  3. The self watering mechanism- once the plant is thirsty, it draws the water from the saucer using a special placed between the saucer and the pot. This makes it super easy for your to take care of your plant, since it can hydrate itself if you’re being a bit forgetful:)

  4. The saucer placed underneath the planter allows you to water your plant from the bottom- it’s easier to reach and you can water your hanging planter without taking it out.

What do you put in the bottom of a hanging planter?

Like we mentioned, one of the biggest problems with hanging planters is that water drips from the planter and onto the floor or carpet every time you try to water it, making a huge mess. We thought about that when we designed our hanging planter, and our design includes the special saucer placed underneath the planter- already incorporated into the design.

Fiddle Leaf Fig care - the ultimate guide

Fiddle Leaf Fig care - the ultimate guide

 It’s hard not to swoon over the fiddle leaf fig. Its dramatic look and lush leaves have earned it a worthy spot as the IT plant for quite some time. But caring for fiddle leaf figs isn’t an easy task, as they can be a bit finicky (or even downright Divas). So how do you care for fiddle leaf figs, ensuring they stay happy, healthy, and as beautiful as they were when you first set your eyes on them in the nursery? Don’t go anywhere, we’ve here to answer all your most burning fiddle leaf fig questions.

 

Do fiddle leaf figs need direct sunlight?

Fiddle leaf figs do best in bright indirect light. Sunlight in the morning or late afternoon is OK. 

How often should I water my fiddle leaf fig?

You should water your Fiddle leaf fig thoroughly when the soil is completely dry. You can also tell if your fiddle leaf fig is thirsty by looking at its leaves - if its leaves look all sad and droopy instead of standing upright, your fiddle leaf fig is probably thirsty.

Should I mist my fiddle leaf fig?

Fiddle leaf figs LOVE humidity. They originate from tropical rainforest, meaning they thrive in a humid environment. Help your plant feel at home by misting it regularly using our beautiful plant mister.

 Are fiddle leaf figs hard to keep alive?

Fiddle leaf figs are hard to keep alive, but it’s really worthwhile if you’re looking for a beautiful statement plant that never goes out of style. 

 Watering Fiddle leaf fig 

Do fiddle leaf figs like bottom watering?

Fiddle leaf figs actually prefer bottom watering. If you’ve never heard of bottom watering before, it’s a watering technique where you set the plant’s pot in the sink, a container with water, or in a self watering planter, so the plant’s soil can absorb water from the bottom. All our planters are self watering, make sure to check out our large cylinder planter Athena if you'd like a self watering planter large enough to contain your fiddle leaf fig.

When you trim your Fiddle Leaf, plant a stem with a leaf in the soil. There’s a good chance it will root and you’ll have a great gift to bring next time you’re invited somewhere.

Why are my fiddle leaves drooping?

There can be a few reasons for this, and it’s completely normal and easy to fix.

  1. Incredibly dry soil- underwatering your fiddle leaf can result in droopy leaves. Make sure to check up on your fiddle leaf fig and water it once the soil is dry. If the soil is very dry, a good soak is in order.

  2. Not enough humidity- Help your fiddle leaf fig feel at home by misting it regularly. Check out our plant mister here.

When is Fiddle Leaf Fig growing seaon?

Fiddle leaf figs tend to be happiest during the spring and the summer, when the weather is warmer. During these months, healthy fiddle leaf figs usually grow new leaves every four to six weeks.

Can the Fiddle Leaf Fig handle low light?

No, unlike some other plants we know, this one is particular about its lighting conditions and will be quite unhappy without any sunshine. Make sure to place it in a spot with lots of bright, indirect light.

What should I do if me Fiddle Leaf Fig has yellow leaves?

 

Yellow leaves are one of the most common problems fiddle leaf parents face. It can be caused by a number of reasons, the most prominent being overwatering. Too much water (especially if your plant pot does not have sufficient drainage) can cause root rot - resulting in a very unhappy plant and yellowing leaves. 

Another reason your fiddle leaf might be unhappy has to do with lighting. Make sure you put your fiddle leaf fig in a spot with lots of bright indirect sunlight.

LIGHT

Your plant might be extra-sturdy, but it can burn in direct sunlight. It will tolerate low light, but it will thrive most in bright indirect light.

WATERING

Water your snake plant when the soil is completely dry. Push your finger into the soil and if it’s even the slightest bit damp - wait longer. Neglect is your friend.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Yellowing leaves signal overwatering. Resist the urge.

TIPS & TRICKS

Sansevierias don’t like roomy planters; you’ll want them to sit tightly in a small planter. They should look like it’s a bit too crowded in there.

Succulent Care & Styling Tips

 

LIGHT

Succulents love light, even direct sunlight. Think windowsill, or a bright corner in a well lit room.

WATERING

Watering does not equal love! Let the soil dry completely between watering, and if you’re not sure - wait more. If it looks sad it’s probably due to overwatering - so resist that urge.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Over-watering is the enemy of this plant, so make sure your pot has an irrigation hole (like our planters) to avoid letting the roots get waterlogged.

TIPS & TRICKS

Lose a leaf? Propagate it! You can lay a fallen leaf on damp soil, making sure to keep it damp. After a while baby roots will form and pretty soon you'll be able to plant a brand new succulent.
