No matter how high or low they trail, Kerry Ann McLean, part of URBN’s team at terrain
, recommends keeping your display pretty and practical. “It is so obvious but most people overlook it: Hang high the plants you don’t need to water as much—like a succulent—and hang low your thirstiest plants,” she explains.
For trailing plants which can stay high and dry, McLean recommends Senecio, String of Bananas, String of Pearls, Epiphyllum oxypetalum, and Selenicereus anthonyanus. If you have a lower spot, like a stool or table, she suggests Aeschynanthus ‘Black Pagoda,’ Philodendron Micans, or Selaginella Uncinata, as they need to be watered more frequently.
