View Full Version : Need help, AGAIN!

Went to the wonderful craft fair at SS this morning and purchased 4 neat bamboo plant holders for our lanai without giving any thought to hanging them. We are in a concrete, or is it cement, CYV but I am assuming the ceiling on the lanai is Sheetrock! These plant holder things will get pretty heavy with 2 or 3 clay pots full of soil and plants. Can anyone give me some advice on how to hang them without risking pulling the ceiling down? I hate to keep asking but my DH preferences every project with "this will never work" so I wanted to make it less stressful for him (and me)! I did look at Lowes and Home Depot but they were too busy to give any assistance in this matter!

perhaps they could hang outside the lanai on shephard's hooks?

Any chance you can anchor a plant hanger onto a wood beam on the house side of the lanai. I don't know where your lanai is in relation to the house but in ours, the lanai is off the living room and I would think that there is a wood beam along the ceiling edge of that wall. If you get a plant hanger anchored into wood, then it should hold any weight of plant. I use them in our place up north anchored to a stud I find at the ceiling height. I think that Ace Hardware sells the plant hangers. Just a thought.

You will just have to make sure you locate a ceiling joist to screw into
