7 Hanging Basket Plants That Can Be Grown From Cuttings 

Homiful.com -- Hanging baskets are an excellent way to add a touch of greenery to any space, whether it's a balcony, porch, or living room. If you're looking to save money and propagate your own hanging basket plants, consider growing them from cuttings. 

Not only is it an easy and cost-effective way to expand your plant collection, but it can also be a fun and rewarding process. Let's check out the best "7 Hanging Basket Plants That Can Be Grown From Cuttings" below!

Silver Dollar Vine (Xerosicyos Danguyi)


With its round silvery green leaves and yellow flowers, Silver Dollar Vine was a popular plant. Take a healthy leaf from the plant and let the cut ends heal. It will root in 4-6 weeks, you can place it in a planter filled with succulent mix. 

It is relatively simple to grow, and requires at least a few hours of direct sunlight to thrive. It is not recommended as an indoor plant.

Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)


Pothos variegated foliage looks awesome in hanging planters. Select a healthy stem, cut it 4-6 inches below the root node, and grow it in water to easily multiply it. Water your Pothos every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry in between. 

Water more frequently in bright light and less frequently in low light. Overwatered plants will wilt and their potting mix will dry out, while overwatered plants will have yellowing leaves and black stems.

String of Bananas (Senecio radicans)


With stem cuttings, you can easily propagate this lovely hanging plant. Plant it in soil, give it filtered light, and keep it moist at all times. It will take 3-6 weeks to root. They are drought-tolerant and don't need to be fertilized, replanted, or pruned on a regular basis. 

The most important aspect of growing a healthy string of bananas is making sure the succulent gets enough light because they do not grow well in low-light conditions.

String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)


This hanging succulent is a must-have in the hanging plant collection! You can propagate it easily from stem cuttings. Keep in mind that the soil's moisture must be maintained. 

String of Pearls is a relatively simple plant to cultivate. It can withstand some direct sunlight, but too much can cause it to burn and make the plant appear stressed during hot weather.

Creeping Fig (Ficus pumila)


Take a healthy 6-8 inch cutting and propagate it in a sterile potting mix as usual. Keep it in an area with bright, indirect light. When you notice it growing, move it to a hanging basket! 

For proper indoor creeping fig care, the soil should be kept moist but not overly wet. It is best to check the soil's surface before watering. If the top of the soil is dry, it needs to be watered.

English Ivy (Hedera helix)


Take a stem cutting with at least two sets of leaves to start growing English ivy. Dip the ends in the rooting hormone and plant it in a soil-filled pot. Water the ivies thoroughly, then allow the soil to dry to a depth of 1/2 inch before watering again. 

Although ivies prefer moderate humidity, they can tolerate low indoor humidity levels. Ivies should not be allowed to stand in water.

Inch Plant (Tradescantia zebrina)


This fast-growing, easy-to-grow vine creates lovely scenery in hanging baskets. It is easily propagated by stem cuttings in water. Inch plant care necessitates the use of bright, indirect light. 

If the light is too dim, the distinctive leaf markings will fade. Keep the soil slightly moist, but don't water directly into the crown as this will cause an unsightly rot.
