I have always loved flowers, gardening, and having indoor plants. But I, unfortunately, have not been very successful at keeping big plants alive or thriving for long. But with my love for plants living inside of me, I kept searching for easy to care for plants and found air plants and succulents.
How do air plants work?
Air plants use their specialized leaves to obtain from the air the water and nutrients they need to survive. … Constant air circulation is key to keeping these varieties happy, along with very minimal watering. This can be achieved by misting daily or submerging the plants in water weekly.
So as you just read, they are super simple to take care of and make me look like the thriving plant lady that I have always wanted to be! I found mine at Lowes and I hang them all over my home. The popularity of these great plants has made them more accessible in stores, which is awesome!
They are easy-to-please house guests and survive indoor conditions with minimal effort. Succulents survive dry indoor environments thanks to special adaptations – fleshy leaves, thick stems or enlarged roots – that allow the plants to hoard water.
So because I love hanging my plants so much I am going to be creating several different looks and different sized plant hangers! So if you love indoor plants like these then don’t forget to follow me on social media to get updates on free pattern releases! Find me on Facebook and Instagram! @arianaehall
A worsted weight (#4) yarn, cotton yarn works great too (I used this blue color from my stash and no label).
H 8 – 5.00 mm crochet hook
CH – chain
ST(s) – stitch(es)
SlSt – slip stitch
SC – single crochet
SC2TOG – single crochet 2 together
SC INC – single crochet increase
FO – fasten off
Row 1 – SC in the 3rd chain from the hook and in every st across. (24) CH 1, turn.
Row 2 – 14 – SC across. (24) CH 1, turn. ( DON’T TURN ON ONLY ROW 14)
Step 15 – Working along the left side of your work, work SC2TOG in the first 2 spaces. SC in the next two spaces, SC2TOG, SC in the next space, SC2TOG, SC in the next two, SC2TOG in the last two spaces. (picture down below) CH 1, turn.
Step 16 – SC across. CH 1, turn. (9)
Step 17 – SC2TOG 2X, CH 8, skip one st space, SC2TOG 2x. Fasten off and weave on the ends. Fold the bottom half up about 9 sts. Place stitch marker to hold in place.
Step 18 – Starting at the lower right corner, insert your hook and slip stitch all around the edge evenly, make 8 SC in the CH 8 space and continue slip stitch to the left corner and fasten off. Weave in your ends.
Cut 14 strands measuring 5 inches long and insert them to create the boho fringe in the front of the desired row. I started on the left, skipped a space, and alternated that way. Cut them across the bottom evenly as desired.
I used my needle to separate the individual strands gently to create that boho look.
Cut a long piece of yarn and wrap it around the loop made on the top. This will cinch together the hanging loophole and create a foldover look to the plant hanger.
