The Hanging Gardens of New Jersey

Houseplants allow for gardening all winter long

Hanging plants fill this house with life and color all year.

Surinder Chadha sent in these beautiful images of his hanging house plant collection. He writes,

“With gardening as my hobby and living in Northern New Jersey, I do indoor gardening for six months in a year. To avoid placing large planters on the floor which take lot of space, I take advantage of high ceilings in my house and have an indoor hanging garden. Here is a small sample of my indoor hanging garden.”


Long trailing pothos (Epipremnum aureum) and spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) compliment the beautiful art on the walls.
Skylights ensure the hanging plants get the light the need.
Not all the plants hang. Here a clivia (Clivia miniata) shows off is glowing orange flowers.
A room full of plants and books – what more could a person want?

    Oh my goodness Surinder! How do you ever water all of those hanging plants without making a mess? If this was my house and my hanging plants there be water everywhere all the time!

    It looks great I’m a bit jealous though. All of my plants are taking up every available window space. I’m not need enough to do what you’re doing! ?. It’s really lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    After looking at your beautiful contributions today, I went back to your submissions from before. You certainly have a green thumb. I am envious of all you do.

    Just simply amazing....and, oh, so beautiful. I wonder if sharing your indoor space with so many lush and healthy looking plants contributes to your own personal immunity system? No winter colds for you, perhaps? I love how complementary all the greenery is to the strong orange tones in your artwork. It makes for such a pleasing overall effect.

    Surinder, what a lush plant paradise you live in! Do these plants all go outside for summer vacation? I, too, am interested in how you water all of them. It always takes me several gallons of water to get mine watered in the winter. Thanks so much for inviting us into your home again!

    You certainly don't need to travel to the tropics during the long winter months to be surrounded by rich, green beauty. Your hanging gardens continue to be beautiful Surinder.

    Mr. Chadha!
    I must admit that you continue to be an inspiration to me. I fell in love with your previous submission so long ago, and was delighted to see your year-round garden again.
    You show, beautifully, that where there's a will, there's a way. I have had so many tell me that they live in an apartment, or condo, or loft and therefore can't garden. Your beautiful home eloquently and tastefully argues the opposite point!
