Decorative wall plant holders can help you cover your walls with lush, green plants. This is an excellent option for bathrooms and kitchens, where you may not want to sacrifice valuable counter space to your decorative plants. Wall plant holders are also excellent choices for homeowners with small balconies or intimate yards, as they allow you to green up the space without doing any remodeling.
Wall plant holders are made in a variety of materials to suit most decorating styles. The classic form of plant holder is made of wrought iron and has a scrolled, curling style. These black plant holders typically hold just one plant, and some holders can also be suspended from the ceiling as well as hung on the wall. Antique shops often carry many varieties of vintage plant holders, although many of them are designed to hold very small plants. Modern styles range from minimalist cans mounted directly to the wall, to ceramic hangers complete with mirrored accents. For outdoor gardeners looking to cover a large amount of space, modular wall plant holders can handle a large amount of plants. These square hangers are mounted at an angle, to keep the contents from spilling on the floor and to keep water away from the wall.
When shopping for a decorative wall plant holder, consider how many plants you want to hang on the wall. Most wall plant holders will list how much weight the holder is designed to support. Follow those recommendations closely, and don't pack your plants into the holders. Tight roots can grow, expand and break your wall plant holder. Make sure you can find secure wall studs to use to attach your wall plant holders. Mounting your holder improperly can cause it to fall off the wall, damaging the wall, the plant and the floor.
