Hanging your plants or herbs indoor is good when you have limited counter or floor space. Also, a great idea if you have young children and pets. And when the weather changes, you need not worry. It is wonderful to have greens indoors. Moreover, isn’t it delightful to have fresh herbs growing at your kitchen?

You need to understand these decorative indoor hanging planters are generally small in size. Bigger, they can be heavy once soil and water are added. Should you use these for growing herbs, you may not have enough. Nevertheless, it should be sufficient if you only cook occasionally. Do not let this to be the reason not growing herbs in these beautiful decorative planters. I grow mint as ornamental plants!

Tips for Growing Herbs in Pots without Drainage Holes

Water. It is best to have drainage holes to allow water to seep out of the pots after watering. This ensures the water does NOT pool at the base, protecting roots from rotting, fungus and bacteria.

This does not mean you cannot grow herbs in the decorative planters recommended here. They are too beautiful not to have.

To overcome this, you need to water sparingly and slowly so that the water distributes evenly through the soil without becoming stagnant at the bottom. You can create a drainage layer by adding pebbles or pumice to the bottom of the pot before adding soil. This allows water to get out of the soil more quickly and away from the roots.

Keep forgetting to water your hanging plants? Or you prefer hassle-free? You may choose to use the self-watering hanging planters. Alternatively, use a plastic pot with a drainage hole that is slightly smaller than the planter to grow your herbs. Simply set the pot inside the planter.

Medium. The drainage can be improved further by mixing potting soil with pumice.

Pumice creates spaces in potting mediums for water and air. Fill the pot with a mixture of 2 parts potting soil with 1 part pumice.

Light. Find the best spot to hang your planter. At a shady spot, the soil is not able to dry out properly thus causing root rot. Well, near a window sill is the best spot.

That's all for now. Happy Growing! Please share and comment.

  1. I love these macrame plant hangers and I remember my mom used to make and sell them as I was growing up. They seemed to lose popularity for a while but now they’re Back and even prettier than before. 

    My favorite is the one with the tray and three plants on the tray. The Umbra triflora hanging planter is also stunning for those that prefer a more modern look. 

    1. I envy those who make their own macrame. It is an art that should be promoted. Thanks for commenting, Michel. 

  2. Hi Sharon, this is so perfect for me. I am retiring in a few months and I planned to work on planting herbs. I was thinking of just getting some pots and planting in them. This article has such great ideas. I love the ceramic pots and the various ways I can display hanging plants. I love macrame so much that I bought a book and taught myself several years ago. I am glad to see that these designs are now available for sale. The best takeaway is the introduction of the self watering pots. I have always had this challenge of overwatering. Thank you for this timely article. I am saving your url and you will be hearing from me.

    1. Hi JJ. I wanted to learn macrame too but haven’t find the time to do so. I have many potted herb plants and this is one of the reasons I wrote this post to share what I found. Love the macrame hanger!

      Happy growing & see you soon!

  3. Hello Sharon,

    Yes. I have to agree with you Sharon. Hanging indoor herb plants seems an interesting topic. If I am being honest, I have to say that I don’t have much experience when it comes to indoor planting. But the images macrame plant hangers that you have posted here are truly beautiful. And they made me to think buying one or two myself. Self watering hanging planters seems like a good idea to go with our day today busy schedule. This is a very informative and interesting article. I enjoyed reading and looking at the beautiful images of plant hangers. Specially the 4 pot bright pastel ceramic hanging planter set. 🙂

    1. So beautiful, aren’t they? I encourage you to grow your plants indoors. It will make a great difference to your home. Let me know should you need any information or help growing your own.

  4. Good afternoon Sharon,

    That definitely is a good idea to make your little “hanging garden” in your home when you do not have much space. Handy when you need it, I must say I like the idea.

    Your macrame suggestions are really pretty and will fit nearly any decor of your house.

    The ceramic ones are also looking nice. A good tip to put some rocks or charcoal as plants normally do not like to have their roots wet constantly.

    After looking at all the different ones you present I agree with you. I also like macrame best.

    Regards, Taetske
