Ivy, an easy plant to grow in suspension

Simple and efficient  

For beginners, ivy is the ideal plant to grow tall. Its pretty little leaves that fall in a cascade are not only very decorative, but in addition they absorb many pollutants present in the atmosphere. A shade plant, ivy is popular in all types of interior and requires only weekly watering in spring and summer and every two weeks in autumn and winter. And as it grows very quickly, it will quickly be very decorative in your pendant light!

The chain of hearts, a falling plant happiness

Original and charming

Ideal in a pendant light, the chain of hearts is very easy to cultivate. You just have to find the right location for it to benefit from a few hours of direct sunlight a day, then water it every ten days to benefit from its leaves in the shape of adorable little hearts. And the longer its purple stems, the more romantic your suspension will be!

Tillandsias like in the jungle

Exotic and modern  

Native to the forests of South America, these strange plants devoid of roots feed on the humidity of the ambient air. Nicknamed "air girls", the tillandsias are the ideal candidates for a suspension very high or difficult to access. Indeed, no need to take them out of their pots to water them, just moisten them with a sprayer to see them develop like in the tropics!

A chlorophytum in suspension to effectively depollute

Resolutely detoxifying  

With its long two-tone leaves, chlorophytum is appreciated for its decorative silhouette, but also for its ability to remove pollutants from the air in the house. He likes the light but dreads the prolonged direct sun and needs to be regularly humidified without being too watered. But once it has found its place, it is a wise choice to say goodbye to benzene, toluenes and other formaldehydes!

Rowley's Ragwort, obviously in height

Rare originality, Rowley's Seneçon is a little wonder to grow in suspension. With its round leaves that look like pearls, it evokes a long vegetable necklace that elegantly falls from the pendant light. We love.

An indoor pothos

Surprising and lush

Nicknamed Devil's Ivy, this climbing plant with beautiful glossy green leaves perfectly withstands the confined air of our apartments. And you don't need to have a green thumb to see it flourish, it is satisfied with a weekly watering, a little fertilizer during the growth period and a lot of light. In suspension, it allows you to create an interior fence if you help it hang on the wall.

Aeschynanthus japhrolepis, a cascading plant

If its name is unpronounceable, the Aeschynanthus japhrolepis is nonetheless an essential plant to decorate the suspensions. Its foliage falls in cascade like a long and flexible hair, which is covered with pretty small flowers in summer. Easy to grow, it just needs a lot of water in summer and lots of indirect light. And then once in place, you will no longer need to remember its name, just to admire it!
