10 Indoor Hanging Plants That're Low Maintenance

Whenever someone comes to me asking how to add some character and energy to their home, I always suggest adding hanging plants. Regardless of their space size, using plants that hang is an option that works for everyone. The result is always a stylish and practical space minus the air pollutants. To point you in the right direction, here are some hanging planters I personally love.

In case you have pets, plant hanging is a great way to keep them from being eaten. I always suggest using plants that’re non toxic to cats and dogs. Here is a list of pet friendly plants that filter your home’s air.

Hanging Plants That’ll Give Your Space Life

Pothos a.k.a. Devil’s Ivy

This beautiful plant is great for filtering air by removing toxins such as formaldehyde. If you live in a home that doesn’t have much natural light, then the pothos is for you. That’s because it’s great in low light situations.
