You’ve just brought home some gorgeous houseplants. Where should you place them? How will you display them? No worries. Below are six houseplant display suggestions that are distinctive and gentle on the budget.

A Crafty Air Plant Display

I’d been gifted with a craft beer flight glass set that I never use. So I dusted it off and used it to house my gorgeous air plants. I place one individual air plant in each glass and vary the sizes. The air plants are happy and healthy and it looks incredible.

A Boho Minimalist Vibe

It’s 2020—past time to relegate Woodstock era macramé plant hangers to a musty steamer trunk in the attic. Replace them with one of my favorite plant hangers—the Hangee Leather Plant Hanger. The hanger’s clean, spare lines doesn’t obstruct the full view of a plant and the cotton ropes are durable, adjustable, and strong. Each order arrives with two hanging planters—a 4.5 x 4.5-inch hanger and a larger 8 x 8-inch planter, two 100% cotton ropes with a gold-plated ring, and a hook.

Eye-Catching Sweet Displays

Unique cake stands in eye-popping colors or unique styles are a wonderful way to elevate plants and make them stand out.  A bright yellow Cakewalk stand contrasts beautifully against leafy green plants and can be used as a centerpiece on a table. 

Paint It Beautiful

A small stepladder painted cobalt blue, housing rows of terra cotta pots containing African violets, herbs, or small green plants looks cool and inviting. Place it close to a sunlit window or sliding glass patio door.

Surrender Your Footstool

An eye-catching footstool makes a wonderful display for a larger statement plant. Place it in a corner or by a sunny window.

Baskets High and  Low

Purchase an inexpensive basket such as a nylon weave storage bin basket, fill with plants and place it on a countertop or circular shelf. Or hang the basket on a wall by itself or under or above another basket.

Recycling old baskets or vintage vases and other items for use as plant displays is a great way to add flair to your home without spending a fortune. For additional ideas, check out YouTube houseplant channels such as Planterina.
