Maybe you discovered a green thumb during the pandemic and now you’re running out of room for your indoor plant babies. Or you didn’t, but you discovered the no-stakes joys of artificial plants.

Hanging planters are a great way to display your greenery and add dimension to a room without taking up floor space or finding space for a wall planter. They also happen to be less prone to insect infestations and double as a piece of décor in your home. The best hanging planters should complement the style of your home or patio while providing space for roots to grow.

They can preserve more water than traditional potted plants and are a unique addition that lets you have plants anywhere, no matter what your living setup is. Whether you’re looking to show off a spider plant or trailing succulents, here’s our curated collection of the most popular hanging planters of 2022.
