If you're thinking about using hanging plants in your home interior or on your patio, choosing the right hanging plant stand or hanging planter is just as important as what type of plant you use and its size. Use hanging plant stands alone or add different levels to your hanging garden with a combination of hanging planters and ground plant stands.

Chandelier Plant Stand

Instead of the same old hanging plant suspended from rope in the corner of your living room or patio, incorporate your hanging plant as a centrepiece. Use a hanging plant stand with a chain to suspend a large plant (preferably with colourful flowers) over your dining room table. If your table is notably large, several plants can be hung from their own chains in a cluster for an eye-catching effect. The centre plant can hang at a circle of surrounding plants at a higher level, giving a tiered look. Caution should be taken with the weight and size of the plants.

Going Vintage

If you embrace a granny chic look, bring in macrame hanging plant stands. If you aren't crazy about gold or brown, look for white. Its neutral colour softens the design on these type of plant holders. You can also choose an accent colour like bright blue or green and pair them with a complementary planter colour. Create balance by adding one plant stand at each end of a bar counter, on either side of the couch or on both sides of the fireplace (though not too close if you use the fireplace).

Create a plant cluster in a bay window or other recessed area, hanging some plants above and placing an old circular plant stand on the ground. These can hold four to six plants, depending on its size. Having plants on two different levels gives more places for the eye to "fall."

Sleek Options

Plant stands and plant holders do not have to all be made from macrame. If you have a minimalistic or mod design in your home, you can find plant holders with simple porcelain planters in a variety of shapes including an oblong disc, narrow buckets or wide, deep bowls. Using these in a bolder accent hue can really make your plants and design colours pop, especially if you use a hanging planter in one area of the room and a ground plant stand in another of the same colour family. For soothing neutrals, you can use bone, white or find a stand using a natural stone finish or clear glass. Look for hanging plant stands with thin rope that's less conspicuous than the chunky size typically associated with this display method.
