Bathroom Plants: 5 Perfect Plants

Adding plants to your bathroom may not only increase its beauty but can contribute to your good health. Bathroom plants help with air purification by absorbing pollutants through their leaves and then metabolizing them into harmless byproducts.

Additionally, research has demonstrated that surrounding ourselves with living, growing interiors decreases stress while providing a more stimulating and interesting environment.

Although you may not believe that you have a green thumb, choosing the right plant for this location can make all the difference for success. A bathroom's typical conditions of low light, high humidity, and warm temperatures must be taken into consideration.

Frosted or small windows reduce light, and some interior rooms have no windows at all. Even though some bathroom plants require very little light, all plants require some light.

Fluorescent light bulbs can be used to provide enough for certain low light plants, and even rotating your bathroom plants to other rooms periodically can be enough. If your bathroom does have a windowsill, this can be a great location to place your plants to receive the best light.

Showering and bathing will cause high humidity and warm temperatures, which can be terrific for tropical plants and not so good for others. Here are some of our favorites that are well suited for use in these growing conditions.

  • Chinese Evergreens – One of the easiest to grow, even in low light conditions, they will produce blooms and red berries (and they love humidity).
  • Sansevieria, also known as snake plant or mother-in-law’s tongue -  is one of the lowest maintenance choices and is available in a wide variety of heights, variegations, leaf configurations, and shades.
  • Peace Lilly - These plants have dark green leaves and white flowers (which are actually known as spathes). It is important not to overwater them, which is easily avoided, as the plant will actually tell you when it's time to water by its drooping leaves.
  • Cast Iron Plant – The name says it all. It can handle most conditions including high heat, humidity, and low light.

 

Any of these easy, low-maintenance plants can help you to add style, beauty and health benefits to your bathroom, and these are only a few of the many choices. Experiment with one and you may find that your confidence in your ability to grow health, thriving plants in the bathroom will blossom.
