I’ve always liked hanging plants and I’m delighted that they’re back in style again. I think because they were so prevalent in the 60’s and 70’s and tended to be a little beaded and macramé-d up that they kind of have a hippy connotation for most people. Think of a hanging plant as adding a living sculpture to a room. Just one interesting hanging plant in an attractive planter can up your cultured bohemian vibe an inordinate amount.
I saw some beautiful hanging ferns for sale at the grocery store the other day which reminded me of a great scene in Steve Martin’s The Lonely Guy. It’s a scene I typically think about when I consider buying a hanging plant. Charles Grodin’s character convince’s Steve Martin’s character to buy a fern to have around as friend to watch football games with and generally hang out. Here’s a clip from the scene with Martin and Grodin: The Lonely Guy: Buying a Fern.
