There’s a serious shortage of stylish hanging planters out there. Trust me, I’ve hunted. And I’m not the only one, either. The white bullet planter headlining this gallery was on backorder for months. I e-stalked Sprout Home until they finally restocked it, and while I waited, I spent a lot of time searching for others.Because I have a dog that eats anything (and everything), hanging plants are really my only option for indoor greenery, aside from closed terrariums. I love the look of hanging plants, too, but during my months-long search for planters, all I could find were tiny ones better suited for succulents and Tillandsia than lush plants with tendrils ready to tumble over the edges of their containers.
These planters, which range from petite and budget-friendly (Ikea) to chic and splurge-worthy (Wallter), are a good start. But I’d like to find more options. Readers, do you have hanging plants at home? Have you discovered any attractive, affordable planters or come up with a great DIY solution?
