Trailing

Filter +

If you are going for a dramatic ‘tumbling’ effect or considering a hanging basket theme for your space then trailing plants are the perfect option for you. Cascading out from their pot, or along the ground, if you have them outdoors, trailing plants are defined by the fact they typically do not have roots along the stem, only at the base of the plant.

Some of the varieties are especially exciting to look at and care for, such as the Spider plant, which can have some stunning effects, growing small white flowers which turn into ’spiderettes’ when the plant is mature enough. These hang down from the main plant like a trail of spiders hanging from a web and can actually be repotted to grow new plants.

Devil’s Ivy and Philodendron are also very popular choices because they are very easy to care for and have the ability to grow several metres in length. We recommend trimming Philodendron occasionally to make sure it doesn’t get too long!

Another point to note is that while trailing plants often lack the capacity to climb themselves, often not having any suction, adding a support such as canes, hoops or placing them along shelves can help you achieve some fantastic results as they find the best amount of surface area in their space.
