What Are the Best Indoor Hanging Plants?

Many types of plants work in hanging planters. Golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum) is among the best indoor plants. This flower sports an elegant look thanks to its variegated golden-yellow leaves. It needs a moderate amount of light to bring out its colours. You can keep it in your bedroom since it’s known to purify airborne toxins, which helps you breathe easier and get a better night’s sleep.

English Ivy (Hedera helix) might be an ideal choice for you if you want to create an impressive green wall.

These showy indoor hanging plants are best for places in your home where your guests can admire their elegant vines.
