Five Trailing Houseplants to Enhance Your Greenery Game

Trailing houseplants are a great way to add lush greenery to your home while also creating an eye-catching display. These plants are versatile and can be grown in a variety of settings, from hanging baskets to shelves or even trained to climb up walls. In this blog post, we will introduce you to the top five trailing houseplants and share some tips on how to care for them.

So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and let's dive into the world of trailing houseplants.

1. Philodendrons

The reigning Royal Family of houseplants, you may have a philodendron in your collection without realizing it- and if you don’t you certainly need one! Native to the  jungles of Tropical America and now Asia there are nearly 500 species known so far, though most of them aren’t suited to be houseplants. Our selection contains everything from the humble Hederaceum to large Tree Philodendrons and are perfect for beginners as they don’t hold a grudge over a late watering. They also have the benefit of being fairly fast growers making them perfect for plant parents that enjoy near instant gratification! Some of our favorites:

  • Hederaceum 
  • Micans
  • Brandtianum
  •

    2. Pothos

    Another family of plants perfect for beginners, Epipremnum are some of the most durable and forgiving plants in the shop. Known commonly as ‘Pothos’ in pretty much all of it’s forms, they’re a staple in houseplant collections since they can add a green, tropical feel to a darker shelf or corner. The trailing vines grow quickly and easily making them the perfect plant to train along a wall or bookshelf and the leaves gently wilt when it’s time for a watering- almost like they’re talking to you! If variegation is your thing check out our ‘Golden’ & ‘Marble Queen’ varieties and stick to Jade if you’re curating a purely green space. Pothos have a place in every houseplant collection, so explore and find the one that’s perfect for you!

    3. String of Hearts

    The most Instagram worthy of all the plants on this list, the String of Hearts is a succulent variety known for its plump heart shaped leaves. The more light you can give this plant the better, as this encourages full, dense growth resembling a curtain so if you’ve got a south facing window this one’s for you! There are three varieties available to suit your aesthetic and color palette, but be warned- while the variegated variety is adorable it’s a notoriously slow grower! 

  • The Original 
  • Silver Glory 
  • Variegated 
  •  

    Strings Of Things

    4. Monstera 

    Many newer houseplant collectors are unaware that Monsteras go far beyond your standard large Deliciosa! Similar in care to Philodendrons, these plants are striking yet low maintenance and can be made to fit your space. As many differences as they have Monstera varieties have one bug thing in common- they love to climb, so give them a pole or old branch to encourage those giant tropical leaves! 

  • Deliciosa 
  • Peru
  • Siltepecana

    5. Hoya

    Hoya’s are the only family of plants we’ve found that have an actual fan club! Just search #hoyaheads on Instagram and you’ll be amazed at how obsessed people are with these plants. And honestly we can’t blame them. Native mostly to Asia, this species is highly collectible and their thick, wavy leaves come in a range of shapes and color patterns. It can be a little tricky to master their care requirements so we wouldn’t recommend them to beginners, but we find treating them more like a succulent than a jungle plant is helpful. As with all plants, Hoya’s are all about trial and error and we’re always around to help you with any questions or concerns you have about yours! Our favorites:

  • Macrophylla Variegata 
  • Wayetti
  • Pubicalyx ‘Splash’
  • Hoya Plants
