If you constantly lust over your favorite plant influencers’ stunning spaces, you’re not alone. But if you’re living in a small apartment, there’s really not a whole lot of room to make your greenery dreams come true. Unless you take things vertically, that is.

After you’ve run out of floor space for all your plant pots, it’s time to utilize your walls with some hanging garden ideas. That wire grid you used to have photos on can easily become a place to hook on some plants. And that huge stick you saw at the park? Bring it home and give it new life as the ultimate plant hanger. (Sounds weird, but trust me… It’ll be worth the weird looks.) Before you know it, your small space will have transformed into a lush indoor jungle.

Ready to get started? These hanging garden ideas will give you a little inspiration for your own home.

Propagation has never been prettier. Replicate this hanging garden by securing glass bottles to some twine and hanging them in a window or on a wall. Then, place your cuttings in and watch them grow.

3. Kokedama

Is there anything more cool-looking than kokedama garden art? The Japanese practice involves growing a plant in a ball of soil covered in moss, and it’s really easy to DIY for your own space. You can try it with herbs, ferns—really, any plant you want.

4. Upcycled Stick

There’s very few floor plants in this space. Instead, the plants are in planters that have been fastened to the wall or are hanging in doorways.

8. Wire Wall Grid

Instead of using your wire wall grid for photos, use it for your plants. It was the perfect way to add greenery to this small apartment.

The base of this hanging garden is some scrap plywood. With a little stain and some greenery, it turned into the cutest plant nook.
