The way a plant can tie a whole room together is pretty remarkable. Whether it’s a small cactus at the edge of your bookshelf or a thriving money tree in the corner of your office, a touch of greenery can completely transform your space. But nothing will turn your dwelling into a lush paradise quite like a good trailing plant (or two).
The best trailing plants can grow suuuuper long with very little to no maintenance involved—making them an excellent option for plant newbies or those just in it for the aesthetic (ah, me!). Looking to add more green to your space? Go for plants such as ivy, pothos, and philodendrons. Or, if you’re down for some natural pops of color, go for a curly Crassula succulent. These plants are pretty versatile and can flourish either in a pot on your windowsill or hang gracefully from your ceiling to get that urban oasis vibe just right. Plus, most trailing plants purify the air. And who wouldn’t love more of that?
