Whether you’re a new collector or seasoned plant parent, it can’t be denied the instant effect indoor plants have on freshening up our homes. But what if your overflowing collection is taking up too much space? A plant divider is a great way to display all your plants neatly while also functioning as a room divider. And the best thing is that you can create one with just a few simple tools.
Check out our guide on how to customise one on your own.
You will need:
- Clothes rail
- Trailing indoor plants of your choice
- Fishing wire (optional)
- Scissors (optional)
1. Find a good spot at home
Pick a spot where you want to place the divider. Make sure that it’s a place where your plants can get enough sunlight.
2. Hang the trailing plants first
Start by arranging the trailing plants first such as the money plant at the edge of the clothes rail. For extra long creepers, place it on top of a stack of books at the base of the clothes rail. Then, start to trail the plant upwards by wrapping it around the bar. This creates a laidback vibe to the room and leaves more space to hang the potted plants.
Bonus tip: If the trailing plants have trouble staying still, wrap the fishing wire around the clothes rail to hold the stems in place.
3. Experiment with different hangers
4. The final display
And, there you have it! A fresh and lively way to decorate with plants at home while creating a cosy corner. Just remember to give your plants the care and attention they need.
