2. Size, style, color and volume of plant pots
– Style of pot: Currently, with high aesthetic demand, there are many designs of pot selected for use. However, the spot style is considered to be suitable for macrame plant hanger which are pots with circular cylindrical shape or similar.
Avoid using the square, rectangular, trapezoidal pots … because these pots make macrme plant hanger products unbalanced, reducing the beauty of the product.

Therefore, it will look very unbalanced and affect the growth of the tree when the free space above is too little.
– Color of pot: Most macrame plant hanger products will be woven from ivory-white cotton cords. This color is quite easy to color-coordinate and suitable with most other colors so you do not need to worry too much about the color of the pots.
– Weight of pot: Most these products use a wooden ring as a hanger. This gives the product a rustic beauty, suitable for Bohemian style and gardens.
