The Best Plants For Bathrooms
Now that you’re inspired and ready to create your plant-filled bathroom decor, it’s time to figure out what plants to incorporate into your design.
There are a few things to consider when choosing plants for a bathroom. Bathrooms are often humid, with changes in temperature and of course low light. This makes finding the right plants a little tricky. But don’t worry. I’ve put together a list of the best plants for bathrooms!
Most of these plants thrive in high humidity and low-light environments and some may even purify the air in your bathroom. Now, who doesn’t want that?!
POTHOS – The pothos is one of my favorite bathroom plants they’re low-maintenance. Pothos plants are tough plants and kind of hard to kill. They don’t require daily watering, love moderate to low, indirect light, and can tolerate humid conditions. It grows quickly and loves to hang and trail, making them the perfect decorative plant!
LUCKY BAMBOO – Inexpensive, easy to grow, and enjoys a low-light setting. Not to mention their beautiful and unique shape.
CAST IRON PLANT – If you are a notorious plant killer this is the plant for you. The Cast Iron plant enjoys a low light setting and can tolerate a little neglect (for those of us who forget to water our plants). It can also tolerate extremes of temperature.
GARDENIA – These beauties are tropical, which means they’ll thrive in humid bathrooms. They do well in bright indirect light, so if your bathroom gets at least four hours of sun the window would be a great spot for a gardenia
CHINESE EVERGREEN – Also known as Aglaonema, is another tropical plant that do well in bathrooms. The Chinese Evergreen plant is a lush, leafy plant with white or pink markings. They are decorative and easy to care for. It thrives in moist but not water-logged soil, so water it thoroughly, then allow it to dry out before watering again. But please take care if you have pets because this plant is toxic to dogs and cats.
DIEFFENBACHIA – The Dieffenbachia is a hardy easy-to-care-for plant that grows throughout the year. This plant actually needs protection from direct sunlight so provide artificial light or bright indirect light to keep these beauties healthy and thriving. It likes high humidity and like the Chinese Evergreen, water thoroughly and allow the soil to dry out before watering again. Easy-peasy!
Other bathroom-friendly plants include:
