Vining plants for your indoor jungle

Do you want to create an indoor jungle vibe in your home? Vining indoor plants are perfect to help create the jungle feel indoors & up your home’s green factor. 

Vining house plants come in various leaf shapes and colors. With a number of different colors and shapes, you can add another dimension to the greenery inside your home. 

A vining plant can be styled in different ways. You can let them trail or climb.

For trailing, you can let them dangle from the side of a shelf or let them hang on the ceiling from a macramé hanger. 

If you want to add more structure and height to your plants, the other option would be to let them climb. You can give the plant a stake, a bamboo pole, a moss pole or a more artistic and stylish pole like a Treleaf trellis. 

You could also let them wander off and climb the walls. To guide them on the wall, hooks, tapes or stylish wall-mounted trellises from Treleaf can come in handy. 

We are listing some of our favorite low-medium light vining plants that would be perfect for any indoor space. Trailing or climbing, which one is your style?
