Last year some time (or maybe even before?) my mom gave me a hoya plant. She has always had one in her house and they tend to do well there, sometimes even flowering.
Well mine doesn't like it here. At all. In fact, it's gone downhill since moving into our office and has been steadily losing leaves and looking sicker and sicker. I blame it on the fact that it was in a low-light area. Plants like sun, so I have learned. The problem was, I had no where to put it where it had sun since we're low on surfaces for plants.
Solution? Make it a hanging plant! I just didn't know how, so I made my way over to Pinterest for inspiration. And came across this tutorial on how to make your own hanging planter.
I headed off to Home Depot and picked up my supplies for under $6. Got to love a cheap easy-to-complete project.
We hung it in our bedroom with our other hanging plant, since the windows give a nice amount of light and it's out of the way enough. Every other window we tried it at, it just felt awkward.
Plus, I'm pretty proud of how my hanging planter turned out.
