Many houseplants need humidity in order to survive so your bathroom can be the ideal place for some. It’s especially good if your house is dry as some plants that struggle in other rooms of the house will enjoy the steam from your bathroom. From large pots with big foliage to smaller pots on shelves and hanging plants, take your pick from these top 4 houseplants for your bathroom.
1. Orchids Phaleanopsis
Orchids are not keen on the cold, so these are perfect for bathrooms where the temperature doesn't fluctuate too much or get too cold. Orchids need the humidity to survive. With numerous different varieties to choose from, you can pick just the right colour for your bathroom.
2. Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Considered one of the easiest houseplants to grow, Spider Plants can thrive in just about any room of the house, plus they easily produce little spider plants that can just be potted up. In the bathroom, they can be grown in pots but will look really lovely hanging in a macrame hanger.
3. Air plants (Tillandsia)
With so many to choose from and now being readily available, air plants are the ideal plant to grow in a bathroom. They don't even need potting! The roots absorb moisture from the air so the humidity will keep them growing. Scatter them or hang them, they are the easiest of houseplants.
A collection of ferns altogether in a bathroom can give a woodland theme to the room and whilst ferns can struggle in dry, modern houses, the humidity produced from your shower or bath will keep these thriving. Try placing a Fern on your bathroom shelves.
