If you don't have the counter space in your home for a plant or it's hard to find a location in your home to place a plant in direct sunlight near a window, use your crochet skills to hook up a hanging plant holder for it instead. With just a few stitches you can crochet a plant hanger that will support your plant and help you position it anywhere in your home with the help of a hook in the ceiling.

Make five chain stitches and join them together with a slip stitch to form a circle. Chain three; this counts as your first double crochet stitch of the next round. Make 14 other double crochet stitches into the centre of your circle and join the last stitch to the first with a slip stitch to close the round.
Make three chain stitches; this once again counts as your first double crochet stitch. Make a double crochet in the base of this turning chain, then make two double crochets in every stitch around. Join with a slip stitch.
Chain three; make one double crochet in the second stitch and in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch. Repeat this round one more time.
Make one more slip stitch to finish your round, then make 50 chain stitches. Cut your working yarn, leaving a 2-inch tail, and make a slip stitch to knot off the end of your chains.
Attach your yarn with a slip stitch to the top of your plant hanger opposite the place where you made your 50 chains in Step 4. Chain 50 and fasten off again as you did in Step 4. Repeat this in two more places around the circle to make a total of four chain stitch hanging ties.
Use an embroidery needle to weave in any loose ends of yarn you left in your project. Bring the four long chain stitches together at the top and tie them together in a knot. Use this knot to hang the plant hanger from a hook in the ceiling.
