When it comes to versatility few plants can compete with trailing indoor plants. Many are capable of surviving in a variety of light levels, bouncing back after brief periods of drought, and making the most of more awkward-to-fill spaces in our homes.
Trailing down bookshelves, hung from ceilings or climbing up moss poles, trailing and vining indoor plants possess the ability to introduce lusciousness and verdancy to any and all indoor spaces.
With so many stunning options to choose from, we have compiled a list of our favourites to help you choose one that is best for you.
