Hanging plants such as the broom cactus only feel comfortable on sills when they are not exposed to rising heating air
Plants such as Columnea, Wisteria (Hoya) and Klimme (Cissus) are ideal for floral decoration in the home. But also cactus species such as the coral, snake or Binsenkaktus decorate spaces very beautiful. Chandelier flower, green lily and maidenhair fern are other popular hanging species. Some grow very fast, so you will soon see the planter no longer: Then only a pruning helps - this also stimulates the branching.
Our picture gallery shows the most beautiful hanging plants for your home.

Hanging plants (15)
The Binsenkaktus (Rhipsalis baccifera) is also known as coral cactus, Rutenkaktus and whip cactus. He prefers a sunny to partially shaded spot without direct sunlight through the midday sun. The Binsenkaktus is a tropical plant and prefers a high humidity, so you should spray it regularly with water. Waterlogging does not like the roots; it is sufficient to water the plant once a week, twice in hot summers.
The chandelier flower (Ceropegia woodii) likes bright locations. She also enjoys spending the summer outdoors. From October to February it is best cool, but not less than 10° C. From April to September is moderately poured, avoid waterlogging. Pour sparingly from October to March.
The pitcher plant (Nepenthes) is a tropical carnivorous plant. Many of the commercially available Nepenthes are hybrids that are more vigorous and robust than the pure species and can thrive under ambient conditions. The pitcher plant should be sprayed regularly with not too cold water - so the humidity is slightly increased. Casting and spraying water should be as free of lime as possible. The pitcher plant likes it especially if it is fertilized regularly (every two weeks) during the period from spring to autumn.
Goldbart (Callisia fragrans) makes few demands on temperature, humidity, soil, fertilizer and location. Temperatures between 18 and 22° C in summer, but not below 10° C in winter are pleasant for the plant. They do not like direct sunlight. Pour sparingly and fertilize.
The maidenhair fern (Adiantum raddianum) with its frond-like pinnate leaves needs a half schady to shady location. The room temperature should be about 22° C. Never allow the root ball to completely dry out, but avoid waterlogging. Do not spray the fern with water. Fertilize is recommended only in summer, every 14 days with lime-free flower fertilizer in half concentration. Repotting is only necessary every two years - women's hair ferns thrive best in confined spaces.
Green lilies (Chlorophytum comosum) prefer bright spots, but grow everywhere. They also like spending the summer outdoors. In winter, the temperature should not fall below 10° C. Green lilies form a dense leafy head from which long-hanging flowering shoots grow out. Shortly after flowering, new offshoots arise in tufts. All you have to do is separate and plant them to multiply the plant. From spring to late summer, you can water the green lily abundantly, but it should not be stunned. Water sparingly in winter. From March to August, it is best to fertilize every two weeks.
The wax flower (Hoya) - also called porcelain flower - wants a bright, but not sunny location. Temperatures between 18 and 23° C are ideal in summer and 14 to 18° C in winter. Wax flowers want to be watered regularly, but only moderately. The bale should never be dry, but not dripping wet. In winter, water only so much that the soil does not dry out completely. The plant is easy to propagate: Leave tendrils first on the mother plant and lower in a second pot. Separate after growing.
The arrowroot (Maranta) should be in partial shade. In dry air regularly spray the leaves. The temperature should not fall below 18° C even in winter. Water evenly with room-warm, lime-poor water, pour more sparingly in the rest period from September to February. From March to September every two weeks, apply small amounts of green plant fertilizer to the irrigation water, do not fertilize in winter. In spring, transplant young plants into well drained, low pH soil (eg rhododendron earth).
The dwarf pepper (Peperomia) is best light to half shady without direct sun. The room temperature should not fall below 18° C even in winter. Keep the root ball only moderately moist and avoid waterlogging. Spray the plants more often with water.In spring and summer fertilize weakly every three to four weeks. Peperomies are quite easy to multiply by head or leaf cuttings. After about six weeks, the first roots show up. If necessary repot in March or April.
The (deer) antler fern (Platycerium bifurcatum) likes to be light to partially shaded, but does not like direct sunlight. Temperatures around 20° C and warmer are optimal, below 16° C, the thermometer should not fall. The root ball must not dry out. Instead of watering, immerse the whole plant in lime-poor, room-warm water once a week. From April to August, enrich the dip with fertilizer every three weeks.
Make the sham flower (Aeschynanthus speciosus) bright, but not sunny at 20 - 25° C. In winter, keep it almost dry at 15 - 18° C for four to five weeks to stimulate flowering. Since the poppy has thickened leaves, which can store water, it should be poured sparingly. Do not let the plant dry out. Fertilize every two to three weeks from March to August. You can multiply the Schamblume by Kopfstecklinge in the early summer with approx. 24° C Bodenwärme.
The snake cactus (Aporocactus flagelliformis) wants to be in partial shade in summer, in winter he appreciates a bright and moderately warm place at 13 to 18° C. The snake cactus loves moderately moist, but never wet. In winter you should pour it sparingly, but do not let it dry. At most once a month he needs cactus fertilizer. In February, you can repot it in cactus soil or peat mixed with coarse sand. In summer it can be propagated by shoot cuttings.
The three-moth flower (Tradescantia) thrives best in a sunny to partially shaded spot. The soil should be rich in nutrients and kept moist to wet. If the plant is cut back after flowering, new flowers quickly form. Propagation is possible by division or sowing.
The coral cactus (Rhipsalis cassutha) does not like the midday sun. Optimal is therefore a half-shady place. The temperature should be 20° C or more throughout the year. As far as watering and fertilizing is concerned, the cactus is very easy to maintain: it needs water once a week, and it is sufficient to fertilize it once a month, even less frequently in winter. Repotting is also rarely necessary.
The Rutenkaktus (Rhipsalis pilocarpa) prefers a light and warm location. In the summer he also likes to be outdoors, but then protected from the midday sun. Like all cacti, the Rutenkaktus is frugal: it is enough to water once a week. Fertilize the plant between February and July with normal cactus fertilizer. Propagation is done by cuttings.
The right location: protected from rising heating air, ideally freestanding in the room or on shelves
Hanging plants are especially useful if you have only a few sills. Because they feel most comfortable anyway on columns or stools, or on shelves on the wall. Basically you should of course make sure that the plants have a firm footing. So choose columns and stools with wide feet - these are not so easy to knock over.
Or you decide for a hanging vessel, which is attached to the wall. These vessels are available in a variety of materials and shapes: whether in bag form of wicker or ceramic or as a metal basket - the vessels you can choose according to your style of living. For metal baskets, make sure to waterproof them or place plant in closed plant pot.
