Bathroom Plants


Houseplants are a common to be seen in bathrooms nowadays. Houseplants add varieties and beauty to the bathroom. In addition to decorating the bathroom, houseplants add warmth to the bathroom as well. Bathrooms are excellent place for houseplants such as ferns and yuccas. Plants thrive in the humid environment of the bath. The visual effects of natural plants in the bathroom connect us with the wonder of the natural world and it brings us a sense of tranquility.

Not every houseplant is suitable for the bathroom. Most houseplants, perched on a window ledge, do not do well with dim lighting or direct sunlight. They prefer diffused natural light. Artificial light, especially a combination of incandescent and fluorescent, also will work. Tropical houseplants are the best option for bathroom plants since they like high humidity, warm temperature and could grow even in low light. Plants grow toward the light, so turn them every few days for even growth. The shower is an also an excellent place to clean your houseplants every couple of months!

Plants that benefit from a shower include ficus, palms, ivy, citrus, coffee, ferns and spider plants. Plants that don't like getting too wet include cactuses and other succulents.
