In this video I show examples of two plant hanger bar designs I’ve made for my grow tanks. They are used to hang mounted epiphytic plants and vines. These examples will help you understand what the hanger bar is, how it works, and should get your creativity jump-started for your own custom projects.
There are many benefits to these bars, including:
the hooks on your plant mounts will be internal in the tank, as opposed to hanging over the tank rim. This allows a better seal on the tank to maintain humidity. It also makes it much easier to manage the plants (see below)
your hanging mounts should slide easily along the bar, allowing quick adjustments to be made to the hanging plants
it’s easy to swap positions of plants
the bars are lightweight, compact, long lasting, and easy to clean
