15 Best Indoor and Outdoor Hanging Planters
Level up your gardening game with a beautiful hanging planter or basket.
Whether you’re a first-time plant parent or a professional green thumb, one fact holds true: no design is complete without at least one thriving plant on hand. Hanging planters, and the plants they host, are our secret weapons for creating vibrancy, interest and height in indoor and outdoor spaces. Dangling planters ooze charm and create a home for trailing vines, fresh herbs and eye-catching blooms in your outdoor space.
Before you check out our curated collection of must-shop hanging planters and baskets below, here are some tips to keep top of mind to find the perfect fit for your space.
Hanging Planter Materials
Use your interior design aesthetic as your guide. Select a hanging planter material that suits your style parameters. Blue-and-white ceramic or patinaed copper hanging planters are perfect picks for traditional or transitional designs, while matte-black metal or geometric glass options are unmatched additions to any modern space.
Your Hanging Plants' Needs
Though rewarding, houseplants are known for their fussy nature. Each plant comes with its unique set of needs to ensure it thrives in your environment, and the planter it calls home can make or break its survival in your space. Our advice? Be sure that the hanging planter you select is the appropriate size and material for the plant you have in mind before purchasing. A glass terrarium works wonders for air plants and succulents but proves unsuccessful for plants requiring well-drained, moist soil.
Hanging Planter Weight
Be sure your hanging planters have the weight limit it takes to hold your growing plant baby and all the water that comes with it. The last thing you want is your beautiful hanging planter to come crashing down – with your beloved trailing ivy and bits of your ceiling falling along with it.
