Hang out with these beauts.
With warm weather here, now's the time to up your plant game. And one of our favorite ways to mix it up with greenery is with hanging planters.
Hanging planters are an amazing option for anyone who doesn't have much room on a small balcony or back patio, but they work great even if you do have a bit more space, too. They bring a lot of interest and texture to a front or back porch, and they can even work well inside your home.

The key to keeping jade plants healthy is allowing plenty of drying time between waterings. Check the soil every three days — if it's moderately dry, the plant is doing okay, and if the soil is very dry, it needs water. When a jade plant isn't receiving adequate water, its leaves will shed and may develop brown spots.
'Marble Queen' Pothos
'Marble Queen' pothos is the most common houseplant, both for its ability to help clean indoor air and for its low-maintenance needs. These plants need very little water and you can let them dry out during the fall and winter months. If the soil feels completely dry, use a spray bottle to water the soil and leaves.
Kalanchoe is a perennial that requires minimal fertilization and care to survive. Since this succulent has the tendency to grow quite large, it's best to keep it hanging a good distance from others. Should your kalanchoe begin to outgrow its hanging pot, consider planting it in the ground using cactus mix.
'Spiky Blue' Gray Hair Grass
'Spiky Blue' is a low-maintenance species that thrives both in containers and planted in the ground. This bright green grass brings bold color to an outdoor space while also introducing beautiful, soft texture to homes with rigid lines or super modern architecture.

Medinilla magnifica is a great choice for spring with its green and pink coloring and striking similarity to tulips. This plant prefers a lot of light and is best hung along the outer areas of a porch or patio. Medinilla thrives best between 63 and 77 degrees F and prefers dry soil.
Eastern Hay-Scented Fern
Known to thrive in shade or partially sunny spaces, Eastern Hay-Scented Fern is used by gardeners to fill voids in planting beds or yards, due mostly to its ability to grow quickly. Characterized by yellow-green coloring, this fern has a similar scent to fresh-cut hay. Because of its rapid growth, this plant is a perfect fit for porches and patios in need of privacy from neighboring homes.
Staghorn ferns are a favorite of decorators and designers because of their graphic shape and ability to flourish on vertical surfaces. Often mounted to a placard and hung vertically, these plants do well in shaded or indoor spaces and can even handle humid environments. Staghorn ferns should be watered two to three times per week and fertilized once a month.
Begonias are the whole plant package: they bring bright color, texture and shape to a space; they're easy to care for; and they can thrive both indoors and outdoors. When potting begonias, it's important to use rich, organic potting soil and to place them in areas that don't receive direct sunlight. To determine how often to water begonias, stick your finger into the soil; if the top inch of the soil is dry, this means the begonia needs water. Plus, you'll need to add fertilizer to the pot every six weeks.
