These look very pretty indoors if you can find a suitable spot to hang them. Light-loving plants will do well in a basket or bowl hung at a window from a curtain track if that is no longer used, provided the window does not get too much sun for their taste. In winter, it may be necessary to move it from such an exposed position. It all depends on what you are going to plant in it.

Baskets or other containers can be hung from the ceiling (if you can locate a joist into which to screw a hook), from wall brackets, or under an arch or in an alcove. In any position that is away from daylight, install a fluorescent tube at least 2 feet above, or choose shade-loving plants. The same applies to wall pots.

The most usual hanging container is a wire basket (which may have to be lined with plastic or foil for indoor use, to prevent drips), or a plastic one with drip-tray incorporated. Other possible containers are lined wicker baskets, gilded bird cages, or polythene bowls in which you can pierce holes for the hanging cords. Polythene is not a very attractive material but if the bowl is filled with hanging plants, it will soon be hidden. In a china bowl or ordinary flower pot an electric drill will make the holes needed for taking the cord or nylon thread by which to hang the 'garden' when it is ready.

For some situations, a long narrow container
might be more effective, running right across a window, to screen an ugly view, for example. This will be heavy, so suspend it by chains from two brackets, one at each side of the window. Soilless compost is relatively lightweight but needs frequent watering unless planted with cacti or succulents that do not need much moisture. If you line a wire basket with plastic or with foil folded double, choose trailing plants to conceal the lining and also puncture a few holes in it through which to push the roots of some small plants.

After planting the basket and watering it, leave it in a cool place for a few days before hanging it up. Once a week it is likely to need water, with an addition of liquid fertilizer. Use very little water if there is no drainage hole. Judge how much to give as accurately as you can: hanging baskets are apt to lose a lot of moisture through evaporation. On the other hand, if there is no drainage hole, there is a greater risk of the compost getting soggy.
