Guide to Hanging Plant Hooks

Hanging your plants has serious perks. Indoors, it helps avoid cluttered counters, adds interest to otherwise bare spaces, and puts pet owners and parents at ease. Outdoors, hanging plants stay out of reach from hungry animals and enhance patio style. Unfortunately, setting up hanging plant hooks can be a pain. Variables that go into hanging plants include weight of the plant, location, ceiling or wall material, and type of hook. We're here to help you figure these details out. Soon enough, you'll have no problem hanging beautiful plants in your home.

Ceiling Hooks for Hanging Plants

When filled with soil and water, hanging plants can be pretty heavy, so err on the side of caution by purchasing a hook that can hold a weight heavier than your plant's.

To install hanging plant hooks in the ceiling, you'll probably need a step ladder. Use a stud finder to locate a ceiling joist (one of the beams that supports your ceiling). If you don't have a stud finder, knock on the ceiling and listen for a short, firm sound—that's where the joist is.

Mark the location of your hook with a pencil. Select a drill bit about the same diameter as your hook screw's threaded shaft. Drill a hole into the ceiling slightly deeper than the length of the threaded shaft. Push the screw into the hole, gently twisting to tighten until the base of the hook is flush with the ceiling.

Hanging a Hook from Drywall

Hanging plant hooks from drywall is a different process than installing ceiling hooks into joists. Instead of a hook screw, you'll be using a toggle bolt with a hook. Plastic toggles are good for hanging on walls, but do not use on ceilings.

Use a stud finder to locate a hollow spot in the ceiling or wall and mark it with a pencil; toggle bolts cannot be screwed into wall studs. Drill a hole the size of the base of the toggle (usually around half an inch). Pinch the wings of your toggle together and insert them through the hole. When the wings reach the hollow area, they'll open inside of the hole. Tighten the bolt to ensure that the wings are secure against the inner surface of the wall or ceiling. Suspend your plant from this hanging plant hook and delight in your green decor.

Where to Hang Your Plant

The location of your indoor hanging plant hook depends on the plant. Think of it as if you were designing your outdoor garden: Pay attention to sunlight needs. For example, if your plant needs full sun to survive (like an orchid), hang it in front of a south-facing window. Buy swivel ceiling hooks for sun-loving plants so that you can turn the plant, ensuring that sunlight reaches all sides of it.

Types of Plant Hooks

An extender hook is a great option for hanging plants on a porch—the sturdy wrought iron will easily hold heavy hanging baskets. Place the extender hook on a wooden beam on your porch and slip the plant onto the hook. This versatile hook can be easily moved. Another hook option for outdoor plants is an iron bracket. This plant hook can be screwed into wooden walls on a porch, fence, or shed.

If you're looking for a decorative hanging plant hook, there are plenty to choose from. Swirly wrought iron evokes a cottage feel in this hanging plant hook for indoor or outdoor use. Or, try an ornate bronze hook in the ceiling for an elegant touch.

The simplest type of plant-hanging mechanism is an S hook. S hooks fit snugly on exposed pipes, rods, or over ledges. They're easily moveable, making them a great option for hanging herb gardens. Also, you don't have to deal with stud finders, a drill, or any other tools—that's a win in our book!


While Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber might be the It girls of fashion, in the interior world it's plants that are stealing the limelight! From large Palms and Fiddle Leaf Figs to smaller Chinese money plants and asparagus ferns, anything goes in the urban jungle! Last month we explored indoor climberswhich have been slowly winding their away up the inside of windows across the continent. And this month I thought we could get into the swing (get it?!) of hanging plants. These guys have been hanging around (this is fun) for a while now and look set to stay! In fact, new and exciting ways to suspend your greenery to new, lofty heights are, er, on the rise! I caught up with my green-fingered friends Igor Josifovic, author of Urban Jungle: Living and Styling with Plants, Hilton Carter, who's incredibly green home I featured here and the Arctic Gardener to get the complete low down and find out more about how we can create our best hanging garden game!

So what makes the best hanging plant? Igor advises "any trailing plant is perfect for a hanging pot as they prefer space to grow freely."

5 great hanging plants

1. English ivy*
2. Heartleaf philodendron
3. Spider plant 
4. Devils Ivy*
5. Boston Fern 

* the leaves are toxic so keep away from children and pets.  

 Tip:  If you have a ground floor window plants make a great 'natural' screen. But Hilton warns "be mindful to not block too much light coming into your windows so that your other plants, sitting away from the window can still benefit."

Hanging plants can be really heavy so you need a sturdy hook and a drill in order to make sure they stay up. Alternatively look for natural places to hang them in your home - like handles, knobs and ledges.

They also make great table decorations. In this space there were no pots necessary as branches were simply hooked over a long cane suspended from the ceiling. The beauty of this is you can update it depending on your mood, the occasion and what you find in the garden / local flower shop!

Continuing on the same theme... using a rail (or in this case, a vintage ladder) is ideal if you're looking to hang lots of plants (and add to the collection as time goes on). This also means less holes in the ceiling (in a bathroom that's always good!).

For a more relaxed look it's good to use a variety of blooms. "I like to mix and match hanging planters choosing different hangers and pots as well as various lengths creating a more lively hanging garden," Igor tells me. "Of course this depends on personal preferences. But usually I would say hanging plants look lovelier when grouped together unless you have one big hanging statement plant."

As long as the plant is suitable for hanging, there are no rules to the types you group. "I like to go free and wild listening to my guts. You can get playful and pair a trailing Tradescantia with purple leaves with a green Bird's Nest fern and romantic ivy plant," enthuses Igor.

When it comes to keeping your plants healthy, Hilton advises hanging them in places you can easily get to. "The easier they are to get to, the more likely you'll keep them alive and healthy."

And to water them; "take them to the shower or kitchen sink, water them and then let them drain out for about 15 minutes before putting them in back in the water," he adds.

You might want to forgo the traditional hanging planter in favour of a Kokedama. Of Japanese origins, a Kokedama is a ball of soil, covered with moss from which a plant grows. Word of warning - these guys need a lot of water and a shady place.

To care for them check the weight and if it feels light, it's time to submerge the ball in water.

Another great option is the hanging terrarium or 'air plant' (source a similiar glass here). The beauty of these is that they are lightweight and can therefore be hung from the branches of other plants. 

And finally, the best hanging plant for a beginner? The Artic Gardener suggests opting for a spider plant. "It's really easy to grow so if you're a newbie gardener, you should give it a go."

Now that we're armed with the know-how, all that's left to do is invest in a few planters. Here are some of the prettiest out there:

1. Woven Palm Leaf Hanging Basket
2. Concrete Hanging Planter
3. Raj Hanging Planter Set
4. Mistana Nanette Flower Pot
5. Affiti Hanging Clay Planter
6. Macrame plant hanger
7. Hanging Planter

I hope this has been helpful! I for one, feel much more equipped to create my own hanging garden. I quite fancy one over the bath! Do you have a spot in your home ready and waiting?!

Indoor hanging plant pots are a great way to bring the outside in and display houseplants in every room, even where space is limited. Hanging planters are perfect for small, compact spaces, as it taps into the vertical planting trend; using the wall and ceiling to save on floor space.

Hanging plant pots are ideal for dried flowers, and for real plants too (especially trailing plants), just ensure you use an inner plant pot to catch the water. If the planter has a solid bottom, the plant needs to be in a plastic pot with drainage holes first, then placed on top of a dish/saucer inside of the main pot. This is of course dependent on the plant and the size of your hanging pot.

Decorating your home with hanging plants will add instant greenery to your abode, improve your overall health and wellbeing, and add a sense of height to your space. With an array of styles, designs and colours to choose from, you'll have no difficulty in choosing a hanging pot to suit your plant and room scheme.

Here we take a look at two types of planters: hanging plant pots (which can suspend from a ceiling, pole, rack or similar, or against a wall using a hook) and wall hanging planters (which are often mounted and fixed on a wall to appear as if it's floating).

Take your pick from a selection below.

The 6 Best Hooks For Hanging Plants

Each plant has its own unique needs, so it's important to find a spot with enough sunlight and out of reach from curious pets. That's where plant-hanging hooks come in. Whether you're looking to find the best light for your plant, keeping them away from pets, or just simply decorating, the best hooks for hanging plants should be strong enough to hold your plants (pot and all) and easy to install.

There are tons of hooks and other contraptions that can hold up your pots, but you first want to consider the best environment for your plant. Will it thrive indoors under a lamp? You may want to opt for a ceiling hook and chain combo so it can dangle beneath the light. Also consider if your plant will hang indoors or outdoors on a porch or in a backyard. That will dictate which hook is right for you.

You also want to consider your own personal style. While metal wall hooks may look gorgeous in your farmhouse-style kitchen, you may not love the look as much if you're into more modern decor. And while pulley hooks make caring for your hanging plant so much easier (you can lower your plant easily, water it, and then return it to its place), they are a bit bulkier and less decorative than other options out there.

No matter which way you go, having a study plant hook that looks great indoors or outside is key. Here's a round-up of some top notch picks to choose from.


The Best Indoor/Outdoor Wall Hooks: Mkono Wall Hooks

Whether you want your plants indoors or outside, these versatile wall hooks have you covered. Each hook is made from heavy-duty iron that won't rust over time. They also feature a "curl" at the end that keeps anything you hang in from slipping. And, at just about 6 inches long, these hangers give your plant plenty of space to grow whether they're hanging on your living room wall or off your back deck. Amazon reviewers agree that these wall hooks look great just about anywhere — and they're easy to install, too.

According to one reviewer: "These hooks are great. They are really heavy, not the flat pressed metal you sometimes see. These are sturdy. Two screws and they are up. Now I’m thinking of getting another set. You won’t be disappointed in these."


The Best Ceiling Hooks For Hanging Plants: Alamic Ceiling Hooks

If simple is what you're looking for, these 2-inch ceiling hooks are as easy as it gets. They come in a pack of 12 and feature extremely durable screws that are large enough to twist directly into drywall without coming loose. Each hook is also coated in vinyl so your plants won't slip, and reviewers have even hung some pretty heavy plants on these hooks with total success. These ceiling hooks have left tons of reviewers impressed with how sturdy they are.

According to one reviewer: "I've used several of these for hanging plants and so far so good. Easy to screw into the wall or ceiling. I would purchase again."


The Best Chain Hooks: eBoot Hanging Chains

To spruce up your porch with a little greenery, these chain hooks are an absolute must. They come in a pack of two, and each chain is made from solid iron and has a weather- and rust-resistant finish. They also feature a solid clip at the end so you can snap them onto your deck, porch railing, nails, or installed ceiling hooks. Plus, at only $6 for two, they're a total steal. Amazon reviewers love how you can adjust these chains by adding or removing links.

According to one reviewer: "Great for hanging plants. Great price and enough links for plants and other household uses."


The Best Pulley Hook For Plants: Lythor Plant Hook Pulley

These pulley hooks are a lifesaver for when it's time to water your plants. They feature a stainless steel hook to hold your plant hanger on one end, and a pulley system on the other. This hook holds your plant at the height you want, and when you're ready to water, tug on the durable nylon rope to bring your plant to eye level. Water away, then place it back at hanging height until it's time to do it again.

According to one reviewer: "These things are GREAT if you want to have hanging baskets up higher than 5 [feet]. They allow you to reach up and pull down the hanging plant to water it without having a "wand" for water hose or getting water running down your arm. I love them and highly recommend."


The Best Hook For Air Plants: Awesomes Air Plant Stand

For air plants, a tabletop free-standing hook like this one is a great, stable option. The wire is made from heavy-duty iron, and it's drilled into a solid wooden base that won't budge. At its widest point, there's a 6-inch space between one side of the heart to the other, so it's the perfect decorative hook to show off your favorite small plant.

According to one reviewer: "I love this air plant stand!!! It is a beautiful way to display my air plants and with this stand they don't take up so much room. In fact I ordered another one for my remaining plants."


The Best Plant Hanging Station: Yosager Premium Feeder And Plant Hanging Station

If you want a home for all of your plants, this free-standing station features four sturdy, iron hooks that can hold up even the heaviest plants. Plus, the hooks are stationed at different heights so you can view all of your plants from any angle (and so none of them are blocked from the sun throughout the day). This pole also comes with an attached bird bath and feeder on the bottom levels, and five prongs that dig deep into the soil to keep it stable.

According to one reviewer: "This a very cool, unique item! It’s a birdbath, bird feeder and even a plant hanger all in one. I would highly recommend this item."

How To Hang Indoor Plants From the Ceiling

Little green flying saucers. But now I hear Stepka's rude voice and my night fears, dreams and thoughts have disappeared, what are these idiots up to. Let's get up. In a quiet, disembodied shadow, I slid behind them in my soft Chinese sneakers, trying not to crunch a dry twig. Although they were flying ahead like a herd of wild boars.

I worked in the place Vitaly, my husband, although he is not my boss, but today he. Was also with us, he belonged to the financial department and in a place with the commercial director Galina Petrovna, a very plump woman, but smart, today he was sitting all day and considered. In recent years, he has become disgusting, then this is not so, sometimes it infuriated me, for the second year he finds fault that we have not a house, but.
