4. String of Hearts (Ceropegia woodii)
The string of hearts, aka rosary vine, is considered a semi-succulent plant which means they tolerate dry soil and warmer weather.
For this plant, you should use a planter with a good drainage hole to avoid overly wet soil that can cause the roots to rot.
Place the string of hearts in a room where it can get at least 3 hours of indirect sunlight every day.
5. Burro’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)
The burro’s tail or donkey’s tail is a drought-tolerant indoor plant. Although this plant belongs to the hardy sedum family, they can be a little tricky to grow indoors because they are physically fragile and their leaves tend to fall off easily.
How to deal with it? Just place burro’s tail in an out-of-the-way position with minimal water and indirect sunlight.
6. String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)
These unique indoor hanging plants are cascading succulents with clusters of “pearls” on long dangling stems. The small pearls store water so daily watering isn’t necessary.
This beauty loves a few hours of direct sunlight in the morning, followed by indirect light throughout the day.
7. Swiss Cheese Vine (Monstera adansonii)
Monstera adansonii plant is a low-light houseplant with a notable look. Closely resembling its relative, the famous Monstera deliciosa, the exotic beauty of these indoor hanging plants makes them a good addition to your indoor garden.
Never place Swiss cheese plant in a spot where there is direct sunlight. Their leaves get easily sunburned and withered when exposed to the sun.
Fun Fact: Monstera plants are distinguished for their unusual leaf patterns. The slits and holes function as a pass-through so the plant can withstand heavy rainfall and wind. These are called fenestrations!
8. Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
This indoor hanging plant is commonly known as the spider plant, but it also goes by other names including airplane plant, ribbon plant, St. Bernard’s lily, and spider ivy. It’s a classic hanging plant that is adaptable and very easy to grow.
Purifying the air in your home and office is also one good feature of spider plants to love about. They are non-toxic and surprisingly edible, making them safe for children and your furry friends.
9. Fishbone Cactus (Epiphyllum anguliger)
Fishbone cactus isn’t your average cactus. Its unusual appearance sets it apart from other cacti and hanging plants. This plant has flat and long stems resembling fishbone.
You can place fishbone cactus in a spot with bright indirect light. Unlike other cacti, this plant likes more water, especially during the warmer months.
10. Baby Rubber Plant (Peperomia)
Peperomia plant is a good start for beginners and first-time plant parents. They are easy to grow and can tolerate neglect. It also passes as a small houseplant that doesn’t require a bigger room to grow.
Some varieties have charming variegated foliage with different leaf shapes and textures, and to maintain their color, the peperomia plant needs medium to bright light.
11. Air Plant (Tillandsia)
