Swedish Ivy is an easy-to-grow houseplant that is perfect for decorating. It’s a trailing plant, so it can be trained to grow over trellises, on walls and even in hanging baskets.
If you don’t have a green thumb and don’t want to deal with the maintenance of your own plants or trees, this option might be right up your alley! We now look at some of the options for decorating your home with Swedish Ivy:
Use a Hanging Basket
Swedish Ivy is a great plant for hanging baskets. It grows quickly and can be trained to cover an entire container, creating a lush green wall of leaves that will look beautiful year-round.
To create this look:
- Hang the basket from a hook or other sturdy piece of furniture. If you want to hang it from an eye bolt in your wall, make sure there’s enough space above so that the roots don’t grow into the drywall or insulation behind it! You may need to build up your wall with blocks or something similar if this is an issue (and if it is, please inform us so we can update our instructions).
- Use a large container so that there’s room for roots to grow into it without filling up all its space right away–the larger size will also help prevent tipping over due to weight when filled with soil and plants! Fill with soil until just below where vines begin growing outwards from base; don’t overfill though because then they won’t be able to spread out as much later on down their life cycle.
On a Stairway
If you have a staircase in your home, consider hanging some Swedish ivy plants from the ceiling. It’s a simple way to add some greenery without having to worry about finding an appropriate place for them on the floor. You can use either trellis or an arched piece of wood for this purpose.
If you choose to hang your vines from above, make sure that they are not too heavy and won’t cause damage to your ceiling or walls when they grow bigger over time. Also make sure that there is enough space between each plant so that people walking up and down stairs don’t bump into them!
Above a Window or Door
If you are looking for an easy way to decorate your front door, look no further than the Swedish ivy plant. This beautiful plant has a few different ways that it can be hung up over an entryway or window.
- Hanging basket: If you want something simple, hanging baskets are an excellent option. You can choose one that matches the decor of your home or pick one in a color that complements your décor scheme. If you want something more unique than just plain old green leaves, consider adding some flowers as well! The combination will make everyone who sees it smile with delight!
- Trellis: A trellis is another great way to display this lovely foliage without putting holes in walls or ceilings (which would lead us into another topic altogether). To build one yourself all you need is wood slats from Home Depot and some nails; follow these instructions here. Or if prefabricated ones aren’t really your style, then take a look at these options instead:
