Just like any other social network, Instagram has its own rules of use to prevent spam and the misuse of automation techniques on its platform. We will list here the main limits not to exceed to stay below the radar, do not suspend his account and have all of his publications validated.
How Many Hashtags Can We Add Maximum to a Photo, Video or Comment?
Currently, Instagram limits to about 15 the number of hashtags you can add in the description of a photo or video as well as in a comment. Depending on the accounts, this limit may be higher with up to about 30 hashtags per publication and/or comment.
What Happens If You Exceed?
If you want to post a photo or video with more hashtags than allowed, Instagram can automatically delete your accompanying text at publication, which will greatly decrease its scope. It is therefore important to pay close attention to this limit.
When posting a comment with too many hashtags, Instagram will signal you with a red exclamation mark that it has not been published. You can then delete it, redo it and republish it.
How to Bypass The Limit of the Hashtags?
If the number of hashtags is currently limited by publication or comment, it is not on the entire publication. Thus, nothing prevents you from adding the most important hashtags in your publication then to comment on your own publication using the complementary hashtags that you absolutely want to integrate into your photo or video.
Here is an example photos: https://www.instagram.com/p/BIhRX6Bg8iO/?utm_source=ig_embed

Instagram and The Maximum Number of “Loves”, Limits?
Instagram can block accounts that make more than 300 Likes per hour, so it is strongly advised to stay below this limit.

A publication, of any type, can not contain more than 2200 characters (hashtags included) Comments can display “[…]” in the feed if they are more than 240 characters but they have a very high maximum character limit hard to reach (more than 1000 characters)
What Limits For Frequency of Publication on Instagram?
Whether on the total number or the frequency of publications, Instagram currently has no limits (except perhaps if you publish several publications per minute, which would appear more than doubtful for the social network).
What to do if your account has been suspended for violations of limitations and conditions Instagram
