Needless to say, none of us are born with the innate ability to garden and everyone has to start from somewhere. It can be a bit difficult to ascertain which plants might be good for those who only have a foot in the door, but we are here to solve that particular conundrum. Here are a few indoor hanging plants that beginners can go with.
- Boston fern – it is non-toxic to dogs and cats. They grow up to 3 feet high. They require indirect sunlight and well-drained soil. It should be kept in a cool place with high humidity.
- Mistletoe cactus – this type of cactus does not have thorns. It grows up to 6 feet high. They require partial shade and well-drained soil. It is easy to grow mistletoe cactus from cuttings.
