Indoor Garden Inspo For Small Spaces

House plants are notorious for their short life spans, but that needn’t be the case! Give your home a spring-time glow all year round with some potted pretties on your coffee table.
Hanging + Dangling
Most house plants will look their best when they are able to receive lots of natural light. That doesn’t mean you have to cram all of them on your windowsill — get creative. One way to give your plants the light they need without the dreaded crammed corner is by hanging them from the ceiling. These hanging planters look especially pretty placed in front of a paneled mirror.

For an indoor hanging garden, Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with WAKE + LOOM Design used succulents because they don't require a lot of water and are long-lasting. An extra touch is a mirror that reflects the sculptural plants in the living room. The hanging wood planters are from Anthropologie.

Succulents in Planters
Incorporate succulents, such as Haworthia minima (left), a small evergreen plant with hard, fleshy blue-green leaves that are covered in white tubercles. It produces white flowers with pink tips. Blumz by JRDesigns, a floral and event design company, has placed it beside a potted cactus.
